TSM Model Wings Bowls Us Over With a Feather

Oftentimes, it takes a load of bricks to knock us down and force us to take an interest in something. And then there’s the odd occasion where all it takes is a simple feather. Earlier today we learned that TSM Model Wings is planning on stretching its wings in the aviation community in an incredible way, not just with the Top Gun license, but with a whole host of new toolings and subjects that left us slack jawed. According to their Facebook page, the Company has big plans for 2018, with both an A-12 as well as a YF-12 in development. Also in the cards are 1:72 scale renditions of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter as well as an F-15 Eagle. Its not clear if any of these aircraft will be featured in the upcoming sequel to Top Gun, which isn’t due out until 2019 at the earliest. We also saw that a 1:200 scale portrayal of an E-2C Hawkeye is being produced, meaning they haven’t forgotten about their smaller brethren.

We’ll keep a close eye on TSM Model Wings going forward as they seem to have caught our attention as well as others with some of these surprise announcements. We’re hoping to have pricing and other information pertaining to these product announcements shortly and will update our product portfolio accordingly. In the mean time, enjoy the TSM Model Wing photo gallery.

Air Force 1 Aims High This December

AF1M36

According to sources, Air Force 1 has several key aircraft introductions pegged for a December ship. Aviation buffs can look forward to grabbing the stick of a Lockheed-Martin USMC F-35B and US Navy F-35C Joint Strike Fighter, which will no doubt sport differing in-flight profiles due to their intrinsic differences for both military branches.

Also on the drawing boards are a General Dynamics F-16C and F-16D Falcon fighter, the latter a two-seat Block 25 variant that boasted improved cockpit avionics and radar which added all-weather capability with beyond-visual-range (BVR) AIM-7 and AIM-120 air-air missiles. All four new items have now been listed on our web site.
