 There's a shocker ;)   I'll be keeping an eye out for the Me 263 re-issue. ( Need to get the airmodel
 kit too, one of these days. ) Their announcement of getting into 1/72 scale armor is kind of exciting.

Damn! now I'm going to need the 1/48 Spitfire Mk.XII  ----  :-X

All that V-2 set needs are the fuel tankers, in the book V-2 by Dornberger (I think that was his name) it said that the V-2's were fueled up once they were on the launch table.

Speaking of another contra-prop, should I buy the Seafire FR. Mk.46 or Mk.47?

Agreed. I will though have to build the Unicraft TP conversion for the Me 262.

I've got a half done Unicraft Trent Meteor which I don't find much wrong with except the propellers.  But I've been able to find a replacement white metal set for those ---

Oooh I see two 1/72 P-35s. I might have to stick a crowbar in the wallet for one of those.

More like the Jaws of Life.

I really want commodity priced kits of the early unloved fighters:  P-35, P-37, P-41, P-42, P-43 etc.

That suggests an interesting whif, a V-12-powered fighter derived from the P-35 analogous to how the P-40 derived from the P-36.

It's like you can read my mind. I've been trying to figure out what to do with those left over P-40 engines.

And Mr Gimper, yes I agree whole-heartedly! A 1/72 single-engine kit going for $25 is ridiculous.

And today I saw one going for near $50. Yikes!

That Caproni is nice. Unfortunately, it's a bit out of my price range. The good news is I probably have all the spares to make my own!

Thanks for the inspiration!
