Have Furuta being checking the Kampfgruppe144 twin-engined poll? At the moment, a Blenheim leads on 23 votes. Lo and behold, is that a Blenheim I see on the Furuta graphic?!

Could their colleagues at F-Toys, Takara or Bandai take the hint and give us a 1/144 scale variant?

i am sure the irony is that Furuta is owned by Bandai!

Is that an SE5a I see there?

I know the Furuta planes are more of a box scale than a specific scale but can anyone tell me how close their WW1 Bi-Planes are to 1/144? Would they work with the Wings of War stuff?
