There are some 1/200 scale wwii minis out there, some of the later war planes iirc. Not too bad a day searching for them, if you have the time.
Air200 and ScotiaGrendel are what I've found so far. There are a few diecast 1/200 larger planes like airliners but they do have some bombers floating around.
I'm just hoping that with the wwii minis coming out, this creates a resurgence in the market that gets more planes out there.
Well, I did find a few when I looked through all my usual stores, www.skytrex.com/ have some (highly reccomend them, nice fellows). 13 german models, 16 british, 4 american and 2 russian.
But you can find almost any WW1 plane that was used in combat in the scale 1/144 (I havn't found any Fokker EIV however and modded one from a Fokker EIII to have as an early war plane. It flies like a rock but it have really nice firepower and when you get the enemy in your sight, nothing else matters).
1/200 only seems to have very few planes. In 1/300 have Skytrex (since they have both scales) 16 german planes, 15 british, 14 american, 3 japanese, 7 russian and 6 itialian. Thats 35 1/200 and 61 1/300.
1/200 is still better than some scale we never seen before of course but I just think it is too small for fighters and too large for bombers. Also in 1/300 you can easily add stuff like ak-ak, bombing targets and so on because you can find everything in the scale.
No, I would still prefer in Wow WW2 were 1/144 even though the B-17 would be huge.
A buddy of mine and I are getting into WoW and are buying up the sets and boosters. While having a blast fighting with the sets as is, we are kicking around the idea of playing at 1/72 scale.
We have found the plastic model kits and are thinking about what it would take to play at that scale.
Has anyone already done this and how did it go?
Any links would be appreciated.
Lonewolf have, he talks about it earlier in this thread. I did host a blue max game in the scale many years ago, I used antennas to show the planes height, looked very nice.
The planes is actually a lot cheaper in 1/72 than 1/144 and it works well for WW1 planes, 'cept maybe the Gotha bomber.
