    Hello...

    Its with a great pleasure that RPmodels present a Great Hero... Douglas Bader... The Pilot that dont have legs but in the sky he was a war machine... This figure will be in 75mm or 1/24, 1/32 and we are doing a big effort to have the figure in 1/48 Scale... But we never did nothing similiar with this, and we have a big path to do...

    We continue developing the Douglas Bader in a Ultra High Detail Sptifire cockpit... This will be in a 1/9 Scale and will AMMMMAAAAZZIIIINNNGGGGGGG... The details are something of other world... And the more interesting thing, we will have many people that are interest in just to have the cockipt... Many people in fact, so for the first time we will have this in a model kit...

    Wow, stunning likeness. Beautiful. Who is going to be the first with a cockpit for the bust or a 1/9th spit.

    Bader looks fantastic Hugo,makes me want to buy an appropriate scaled model of a spitfire. The cockpit version sounds amazing.
    Love your enthusiasm,it's infectious.
    Well done to you & the team.

    Hello Mr. Ranchhand

    Thank you Sir... Its a big responsability and I will do the best that we can do a AMAZING model... Its very hard, and everthing is new to us... Do a Ultra High Detail Spitifire Cockpit is a challenge... But we will do it... I can assure you that... Has matter the fact the cockpit is the good way, and we want put Douglas Bader in action pose, screaming and he is using teh airplane guns to destroy an enemy airplane... He are put many action in the figure... Its completely different... But you will see, and in the final end you will love it...

    Thank you Sir.
    With best regards

    Olá Vitalino...

    Obrigado pelo comment... No futuro teremos de pensar nisso... Acho que existe uma personagem bastante interessante, mas vamos ver... Agora estamos concentrados nesta... O grau de complexidade é um pouco difícil... Mas com calma vai lá...

    Obrigado.

    Hello Mr. Other Ian.... LOL... LOL... LOL...

    Thank you for your comment... We are modelling the cockpit and its almost finish, and we are already modelling Bader, but we have to do a new modelation, because the pose its completely different... We are put the figure in an acton pose, where you can see emotions and feelings... Give just a few days... I will try to put some WIP´s in here...

    Thank you Sir.
