    In regards to an OV-10, OK. But you do know this plane replaced a Skymaster, and the Skymaster replaced a Bird Dog. Just sayin man. OV-10 is cool and all, and it is quite a bit more plane than the other two. But I guess you could have mounted a missile on the other two, too.

    Silver Plate is cool too. Would probably fly well, but no better than an Electra.

        Are you referring to the tariffs or the FAA rules change? From what I understand, the tariffs are going to be 10-20%, so the F-105 goes from $98 to $108. Might put a dent in the 80 mm and above market, unless there's an exemption for hobbies. But the bigger question is where is the money from the tariffs going? Is it going to things like the Small Business Administration, or just in the "general fund" to build more "bridges to nowhere"? It's the FAA that's more troubling to me more because one of the rules changes involves a written test and other things, which sounds awfully like a setup similar to the local DMV, and we all know how well THAT works.

                    Why not bring back a 1600mm zero... Grass field capable is a must...

                      +1 on He111,needs to be in scale with the 1600 spit.

                        Never happen in scale to the 1600 Spitty since the HE111 has a span twice that

                          But with the 1200, more believable.

                            that would have to be a big He 111, but a 2000 mm would be great

                                  My condolences. Never been laid off, but have had hours cut. Hope you go back soon so you can get that Heinkel when it comes out.

                                      The Zero is one of my all time favorites. I still think the original FMS 1400mm Zero remains one of the best flying foam MP warbirds I've ever flown, period. And I've flown, without exaggeration, nearly all of them. I'd wager that many pilots who flew one would agree it's a sweetheart.

                                      Sadly, another fact cannot be ignored: All data we have point to Zeros and other Japanese warbirds, in any foam size over the past five years, struggling to break even. From a manufacturer's investment point of view, it's impossible for me to convince them that the sixth time's the charm. For whatever reason, the market voted with their wallets against further Japanese warbirds. At least until newer warbirds have been done and the cycle begins anew. Meanwhile, T-28s, Cubs and Mustangs continue to sell, sell, sell.

                                      As a modeler (not as a developer), I too want to see new, never before modeled aircraft. But as a developer, I'm telling y'all straight, supporting "left field" products that are on the market now is always the most powerful way of influencing manufacturers to continue to push outside the Classics in the future. Otherwise the temptation (and economics) to continue with the Same is understandably difficult to ignore.

                                        Dan I didn’t catch this when I first read your post sorry to hear it. I understand your situation completely I used to get laid off occasionally with a good paying job I had years back but I was younger and getting work was easier. Finally I got tired of it and moved on it actually worked out a lot better in the end. I hope something similar happens for you and it works out to be a blessing in disguise.
