Forget that nonsense, it's the range of Percival Gulls and Proctors I'm excited about!

I always knew I liked you.


Ditto. However let's hope it's better than their Gee-Bee R, it has some major problems. :icon_sueno:

Hmm, with those other P-63 variants, can we get an XP-63D with a bubble canopy?  I keep thinking that could make for a nice blend with an L-39-2.

CMR makes a bubble D in 1/72 Evan.  But a styrene version would be nice.

I have just made space for several FD.2s.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Now we just need an aftermarket canopy and the big jar of yellow paint for the RCAF Wapiti Mk.IIa  ;D

I've got a CMR 1/72 Wapiti in the stash, I'd have to find it but I think you can do a RCAF variant

I will likely do so, too.  So much whiffing that can be done with that, in addition to what was done (dare I hope for a BAC 221 at a later date??).

Do you think those are ex-Toko kits Greg ?  I've got an 'E' in my stash.

Now, if they'll do a 1/72 XP-63D with the bubble canopy and no "car doors".  I would love to cross that with a L-39-2 kit for a truly unique look.
