Large Scale Planes are getting popular more and more. With their larger size, these scale aircraft models can be easier to work on and handle, but can still allow for many added detail parts to bring them to life. Typically large scale means 1/32 or 1/24.

Big Scale Planes used to be few and far between, with just a few offerings, from companies like Revell or Airfix. Many of these aircraft kits are still around today, but sometimes their moldings can be dated to a time when they probably weren't very popular, and were more expensive to the average builder.

Few detail parts existed back then, so if there were any issues with the kit that needed corrections, there were no resin or photo etch parts to bring the kit back to being an exact replica like today.

Now Large Scale Airplane models are made by many companies. Not just Revell or Airfix, but companies like Trumpeter, Tamiya, Zoukei-Mura, and Dragon models, just to name a few.

Most of these are modern toolings, with more parts in a kit than you can imagine. Details from engines, to wing spars, to internal fuel tanks, to removable cowlings. These kits produced today will easily rival any 1/72 or 1/48 scale aircraft models.

But the older Model companies are getting into the game with new kits to add to their large scale aircraft lineup, including Airfix, which just recently issued an all new model of the Hawker Typhoon. Not a reissue, this kit was developed from the ground up, and exceeds anything most modelers could ever dream of as far as detals.

Zoukei-Mura (Super Wing Series) is a relatively newcomer to the model scene, but their kits are exceptional in detail. Cross section parts reveal all the inner working of an aircraft, from the spars to the internal fuel tanks and gun placements. They even offer details parts to go beyond the boxed model, though the kits are so detailed, there isn't much you can add.

Whether you preference is 1/32 or 1/24 scale, these kits offer more than your typical models. With options such as posable flaps and rudders, pilot figures, moving parts, removale pieces using magnets, and more, these kits rise to an all new level of building.

Let's hope the trend continues and we get many more large scale plane models in the future.

Some of my favorite aircraft are:

The P40. I like it's sleek lines. The use of the "sharknose" graphics are a favorite of mine also. The planes look good in green or tropical desert paint schemes. I recommend The Flying Tigers, a John Wayne movie. It gives some history about when P40's were used before WWII in China, trying to fight off the invading Japanese forces. The real planes wrre very basic, and not perfect as far as a fighter, but they got the job done when needed.

Another favorite of mine is the P51 Mustangs. I prefer the bubbletop canopy versions. It's another sleek aircraft, and it does resemble the P40 in some ways. (or the A36 Apache). Many of them were silver, so from a painting aspect, they're usually an easy paint scheme to apply to the model.

The F4U Corsair is an aircraft I like too. The inverted wing is so unusual. The dark blue paint schemes are easier to paint. The radial engine just begs for more detail on a model.

The Douglas Skyraiders appeal to me because it was the first aircraft model I ever built in the late 1960s. It's a prop plane too.

I don't have a particular jet fighter that I like. They're all pretty similar. Though I have built a Russian Mig Fulcrum before, and that was an interesting plane. The intake vents on top of the wings were unusual (the Russians use the vents to suck up air from above the runway on takeoff and taxing, rather than suck up debris and dirt directly off the runway). I thought that was clever.

Though the Russians can be very practical when it comes to their engineering. Almost the opposite of German engineering. Germans will use 5 knobs when only one is needed, the Russians will only use one it seems.

There are a lot of aircraft I haven't built, and given the time, I'd love to build them all. There are still plenty more P40 and P51 kits.

Large Scale Planes and aircraft model kits of all sizes, from 1/32 scale and up. Best deals and variety of kits.
