Nice!  Can I just buy the box art in a large size?  That's gorgeous.

AZ model Supermarine Spiteful "Special" "What if" (kit number AZ 7277 )

Nice looking Spiteful in SEAC markings.  Personally, I think it would look even better in the all-green scheme :)

I've got that one but I was disappointed with it, it's not 1/72, more like 1/75 I think.  Their Seafang though is more the right size (got one of those too)

I am "trying" to complete of these kits.

@Rob: Now that what you mention it, it does look to be a bit on the small side.

@Jeff: I will oblige you with an all-green RAAF scheme. And I'll throw in a pair a Marquardt ram-jets I built for it.

And with the Canadian dollar heading towards to the Center of the Earth, it's only $1.99 USD.  :(

Rob has many other kits on sale as well.

You know, I think the box art would be more impressive if the Brit plane in the background was a Gloster Ace or something like that, instead of the Hornet.  That's considering the P.60 was purely a hypothetical aircraft ------ whereas the Hornet was the real deal -- (so was the Ace )

Good idea. The MB-5 replaces the Seafire FR.46, 47. Served beside the Seafang FR.32.
