Hey all,

I'm plunging into the 5ft Falcon. As I have gathered my info I have noticed that a lot of the reference has been lost due to bad links, missing members, etc. My goal here is to not only show my progress, but to collect as much info as I can hosted via the RPF so hopefully the info will always be here. I've already purchased Geek1138's awesome 3d printing files, but am still interested in the actual models.

I've taken the most comprehensive list I could find and started to price/find the kits. My goal is to create a document with pics of each model that can be shared for future reference. So far I've just started with the Airfix kits. What I could really use help with is knowing how many of each kit is needed. If you know and could toss that info my way I'll add it to the document.

I got the AMT and Aurora kits on the document. I'm also going to post scans of the parts as I collect them.

I'll work on the rest throughout the weekend.

I've updated the google doc (see first post) with pics of all the models. If I have the wrong ones, please let me know. Also, if anyone knows how many of each models is needed, please let me know.

Thanks,
John

Agreed, a Harrier should be $100 tops.

Also, the pictures you have for the Tiger 1 and king Tiger are both the King Tiger.

Thank you for putting this list together, wish I had more to offer.

Thanks. I updated with hopefully the right one. :)

Please don't pay $500 for a Harrier.
Sold listing search will be very helpful and most models can be had fairly, with patience.

I nearly fainted when I saw the $500 price on the Airfix Harrier. Here in Europe the price range is anywhere between €70 to €120. If you’re patient, you might be able to find and buy one at a bargain.
The large scale 1/12 Tamiya kits are also expensive ( € 150 to €250) and again , you can find the odd kit cheaper at auction on eBay.
The 1/15 scale Bandai kits (Hummel and Sturmgeschutz iv ) are “pigs” to find and buy.( €150- € 250)

Update in the first post with a heck of a lot of part maps. Thank you to Nick and Craig who sent me all of the part maps they had worked on. I'd also like to thank Jay Machado for allowing me to share his part maps as well. Check out his blog. I'll be adding these into the thread when I have time. I need to convert them to jpg since the forum won't allow psd files.

Thanks again everyone.

I had a look through the list & found a number that were not used on this miniature. These being:

Airfix 1/24 Stuka
Airfix 1/76 Scorpion
AMT 1/25 Transit Dump Truck
Hasegawa 1/72 Tiger 1
Italeri 1/35 Kubelwagen
Nichimo 1/35 Jagdpanther
Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari 312T
Tamiya 1/12 Tyrrell P34 6 Wheeler
Tamiya 1/12 Matra
Tamiya 1/35 8-Ton Semi Track 20mm Flakvierling
Tamiya 1/35 M16/M21 Halftracks
Tamiya 1/35 M48

The Tamiya 1/35 M4 Sherman you have listed is the wrong type/variant, you need the M4 as per picture here.

Updated the list thanks to eagle1's knowledge. I haven't decided the final format for the kit list yet, but right now I'm using bookmarks to link to kit scans. For instance, right now the only one I have is the 8RAD. If you click on it there is a bookmark that will take you to the kit scans. Until I can figure out a better way that's how I'll do it as the kits come in.

Hello. Just joined.

If you were into resin 3D printing, I could really help you out. My own project is to build a 3D printed, 32" inch studio scale MF. But the detail is based on the 5 footer. So, I have been collecting digital versions of most of the ubiquitous and defining kit parts, like the Wankel Rotary engine. The 8Rad. Sealab III and a whole bunch of others.
