Simply too pulpy for its own good; the Autogyro from the Lupin III anime movie. I never saw it, but I once saw the kit on the web and wanted it badly, as its Art Deco lines are just awesome.

However, as it turned out, the manufacturer has long since folded and this kit is no longer produced and hence hideously expensive. A couple of weeks ago though, I managed to bag one on Ebay for 15,-, which was a steal! It's being built right now. very simple kit (wings and fins are all one-piece affairs, making them very hefty and sturdy) and I'm really enjoying myself with this kit:




I fell in love with the lines of this plane; the Heinkel HE-70. Originally a mail plane, used as a light bomber by the Condor Legion in Spain and eventually evolved into the well known HE-111. Was built with a Magnesium airframe, which was light, but also quite volatile when hit. Roll Eyes Still; those lines are just masterful.

AZ models made a limited run plastic kit in 1/48, which I still covet. Might not be too versatile for use in-game, but it's just one of those wannahaves:




And then the Focke Achgelis Fa 223 Drache; I have two of those in WIP status, to fly my Ahnenerbe combat teams around the world to harass my player group as they pulp their way around ancient sites. Models are Special Hobby 1/48 ones:



I find VTOLs to be very useful on the table, as they are not just eyecandy and/or objectives, but can also be used to fly around...

Just bumping this to ask - have we got a list anywhere of what pulp planes DO exist in 1/56 or 1/48? 1/72 planes can work, but I think they really do look way too small.

It's sort of funny that my figure and vehicle scale is closer to 1/48, but my building scale is much smaller. The larger the real-world item, the smaller it winds up being on the tabletop.

I would really like to look at 1/56 or even 1/60 planes as they seem the best compromise between not taking up too much play area and not being so small that they're unbelieveable, but there's almost no airplane models in those scales. I guess when I get around to building a plane, I might just wind up getting paper plans and recaling them for scratchbuild, though I don't know much about doing that sort of thing at all.

Maybe beggars can't be choosers, but I'm not sure there are any 1/56 models made period. Pretty much any widely used transport built prior to 1933 would work - Boeing 80, Ford Trimotor, Fokker F.VII, Junkers Ju 52, etc. 

As a small side question, has anyone ever built the Fokker F.VII trimotor (my preferred Pulp plane) 1/72 kit or have pictures of it next to minis?

I know Dave had a 1/77 Ford trimotor coin bank (which is a different plane, but is similar), but crucially I think my larger minis would not fit under the wings of that model, which would be huge loss of play area.

Lord Snapcase, I believe you were after a Macchi M33 in 1/48, the only one I know of in that scale is by Brach Model (I'm afraid I don't know its current availability).

Brach Model BM-W04

Started searching and no M33 yet, but I found a 1/48 Macchi M5 on eBay and I had to buy it!

When it arrives I'll post a picture of the kit.

(and when I came back to this thread I saw the Focke Achgelis Fa 223 Drache and I had to have one of those as well!)

Milord....if you are still chasing up this lovely piece, I believe I have 4 or 5 of them.

'tis funny that I have just seen this thread as Mads and I have just built 4 planes for our airfleet and have another 20-30 kits to go, including a 1/48 Ju52 and a Catalina.  A number of flying wings both German and American are also waiting to be made.

Peter, I wasn't very clear about the Drache. I ordered an M5 and a Drache yesterday. However, if I feel the need for another one after I've made the first one I will drop you a PM. Many thanks for your kind offer.

The kit I'm looking for now is made by Brach, the 1/48 version of the Macchi M33, if you have one of those?

By the way, I have the civilian version of the Ju52 in 1/48 waiting to be made as well. It looks like a beautiful kit.

Yes, it does look a bit daunting. I might save mine for when I retire! I'll be less stressed then!  Laugh

Somehow I missed this thread!  Shocked

Of course I want to contribute my multi-purpose amphibious plane: Grumman J2F "Duck" in 1/48 scale by Czech manufacturer Classic Airframes: http://www.internetmodeler.com/2001/july/first-looks/ca_duck.htm

I chose that one, because it is still relatively small, can transport some passenger and luggage and can travel over land and sea alike. That makes it useful for so many nice and pulpy scenarios on remote islands where naked dinosaurs and carnivore Amazons (or was it vice versa?) prey on daring explorers or each other...
