Does anyone make this in 1.300?

Hostile Aircraft (Goblintooth) or Fighting/Flying Wings (can't remember what the FW acronym means in my database) does the M.5, which is kind of a lookalike, as I recall. HA/FW is now mainly via Pete Aguilu, aka Lord Cheerios on here, but I haven't been able to get in touch with him since last winter about some stuff I was hoping to order from both of the lines.

Just checked Roman's store (Der Kampfflieger) at Shapeways, he also does the M.5 in 1/144, and Roman has been kind enough to do some 1/288 conversions of his 1/144 stuff for me (you'll see them in the store). If you ask, I expect he'll accomodate you.

Here's his M.5:

Cheers Chris

I take it both of those suppliers are base in the USA?

Pete is (in Wisconsin); Shapeways has American and Dutch offices (the US one is relatively new). Shapeways is the 3D printing stuff.

Under the Biplanes board there are reviews of Der Kampfflieger's 1/144 planes for the Wings of War crowd.

Nice one Chris.

When you order them…what material do use?
