I would vote to see the 1/32 Morane Saulnier back in the market with an improved/better cockpit, nose with the M/S logo,  and in Russian markings ( it would be great if they can include a version with skies). Also, there were past rumors long ago that SH would release a 1/32 version of the Lloyd C.V and I believe it was in their future work plans, does somebody know what happened?

Ooops! I didn’t read Dave’s original post properly. The Pfalz D.XII wasn’t listed as an available tooling. Still like to see it again, though.

Cheers

A progress update on the Special Hobby kit poll.

As at today the 1/32 Nieuport 11 Bebe leads the most wanted list with 18 wanting this OOP kit enhanced and returned to production.

Next is the 1/32 Morane Saulnier N with 11 votes followed by the 1/48 Sopwith Tabloid (9), the 1/48 Sopwith Schneider with 8, and the 1/48 Spad VII and Lloyd C.V Series 46 on two votes each.

Keep the votes coming in folks, let's show Special Hobby there's a need for these OOP kits to be reissued with enhanced resin, PE and new colour schemes.
