I've got to keep an eye out for this one!

It'd be fun to give it swept wings & tail.

Nice.  Pity about the scale.

I only saw the real thing in London a couple of weeks ago too. ;)

Perfect scale and it's got to be better than the old Frog kit. The engine looks great!

 I feel the same, but I have to admit I mainly want to turn the engine into two or three Death Ray Projectors...

Well my project is for a RW proposal that I've read about in an AeroMilitaria issue, The Air Ministry was looking for an airframe to test some of Whittles engines (the early ones), the proposal was to mount the engine midship in an Avro Anson. Air intake was a duct from the nose then around the pilot, the exhaust was bifurcated either side of the rear fuselage. I thought I had some photos of the article but I can't find them right now.

Coming soon. 1/72 Tu-143 Reys

The Tupolev Tu-143 Reys was a Soviet unmanned reconnaissance aircraft in service with the Soviet Army and a number of its Warsaw Pact and Middle East allies during the late 1970s and 1980s. It contained a reconnaissance pod that was retrieved after flight, and from which imagery was contained.

I wonder if they will consider doing a Tupolev Tu-123 Yastreb:

Coming out in 2019!  1:48th scale Douglas A2D Skyshark! 

Really glad to see this subject being produced.  I hope they do a decent kit.  Of course anything will be better than the old MicroScale kits that I currently have in protective custody.

Don't be too sure of that.  The Mach2 one is an abortion of a kit...

The RarePlane vacuform isn't too bad, and the Anigrand kit is good too. 1/72 though.

So buying 2 of these kits was a bad idea?  :o

The Skyshark looks like a whiff in a box anyway. Maybe the inaccurate kits could be good whiff fodder.

I only bought one of the Mach2 kit and it will be gently whiffed into a production version with a T54 replacing the T40.

It'll have to go a long ways to improve on the accuracy of the Dynavector kit, hopefully they
don't fornicate the canine.
