As there are so many great pulp planes out there, I thought it might be fun to put a 1 stop list of planes that work with 28mm figures. Please add pics of planes you have next to rulers and miniatures as that is the sort of info I like to see when considering purchasing a plane.

My scale minis are Gangster by Copplestone, Pilot by Pulp & Aviatrix by Artizan

Ryan PT trainer
1/48 plastic kit by Testors
easy to find
easy to build
cheap
it comes with floats as well if you want to make a seaplane




I need to finish this badly, I started it here; http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=25563.0

Northrop Gamma
diecast bank by Ertl for Wings of Texaco
easy to find
not too expensive
No other version of this great plane in scale





Lockheed Electra Jr
plastic toy kit by NewRay
cheap
easy to build but the nose is wrong and parts dont fit well




There is an excellent Electra Jr die cast for Wings of Texaco #17
William Bros also do a 1/53 great kit of the Electra Amelia flew

Lockheed Vega
diecast bank by Ertl, available in many paint schemes
a tad oversized I think
cheap





Lockheed Vega
1/48 plastic kit by AMT/Ertl
easy to find, relatively cheap, available with floats instead of wheels
I think it is a horrible kit that I never finished and will eventually turn into a wreck.

Great idea! A much needed resource. Already helpful. Thanks.
No pics as yet as my planes are still shrink wrapped (Mirage Hobby 1/48 Lublin R.XIII Ter / Hydro  and 1/48 Lindberg OA9 Goose).

Oh, those are great ones, Braz. I want more seaplanes...  Grin

I'll get some of our planes posted too, and I'll try to include the new Vehicle Profiles for planes. I'm really happy with how the new airplane rules are playtesting.

Great idea for a thread, Amalric. I am currently working on a FineMolds Curtiss R3C-0. It's a lovely kit and I'll post a photo when it's finished. All my kits are 1/48 at present, although the Trimotor listed below does not have a scale listed on the box!

Still boxed:

FineMolds Savoia S.21F
Testors Travel Air Mystery Ship
Testors Gee Bee Racer
Testors PT20 Trainer
Revell Junkers JU52/3M Civil Version (really looking forward to doing this one!)
Monogram Ford Trimotor (Antarctic version)
Modelcraft Noorduyn UC64A Norseman
Lindberg OA9 Goose (to be painted as Cutter's Goose)
Smer Macchi Castoldi M.C.72

For secret rocket base:

Pegasus V2 x two
Dragon Ba349A Natter and launcher
Tamiya V1, manned and unmanned versions

Wanted in 1/48:

Macchi M33, anyone know of one in 1/48 scale?

Might be a while before you see photos of this lot!  Laugh

Here are some links to some of Pulp Airplane banks. It is weird that they make a airplane bank of the Lockheed Orion and the Lockheed Air Express in 1/43 or 1/46 but the Vega is closer to 1/35 or 1/32

Awesome!  Looks like 1/48 is the way to go with the bigger, "heroic" 28mm minis. 

Really, really like the pulp theme, too.

I'm working on a modified PBY Catalina for the "Hannah Humperdink" adventure stories I tell my little daughter at bedtime.  She has the minis (mostly Copplestone) for Hannah and her group of adventurers.  Now, they need their airplane.

I can't wait to see it.
The Catalina is such a sweet looking plane.

Here's one of my recent acquisitions. 1/48 scale.

Still in the box at this point. What is really cool is that there are two models in the kit.





Have some thinking to do on paint schemes...

Anyone know of any good Pulpy looking plane in 1/48 that would be suitable for Spanish Civil War gaming of pilot down and a rescue mission please ? Cheap and cheerful model as I would model it as crashed.

Many thanks in advance.

Hawker Fury might be a good choice, and you can find them fairly cheap. Here's one on eBay --
