8684Re: [z_scale] Re: 1:200 airplanes
- Feb 6, 2002Dear friends of scale Z,
planes on a scale Z layout are fine. I was searching also for a long time to get
them. I was only succesfull to get a helicopter in this size. And this little
piece is now sitting on my layout and is whirling its rotor blades.
But I have some problems when I read that some of us are glad to get the big
commuter planes like the B 474, Airbus a 300 or the Tristar.
Boys, these are huge planes! In scale Z the B 474 has a span of nearly one feet
and a lenght of 12 1/2 inch!!
This is far to much for my layout. Actually it covers one quarter of it!
I am looking for the smaller civil aviation planes like the Learjets or Cessnas.
Has anybody an idea where to get these aircrafts?
