Did the Mauler share some lineage with the Skyraider?

I've never seen this aircraft...reminds me of a P-47, AD-1, and smidge of corsair / Avenger wing.

The 3 torpedo load out, flying ASW from HMCS Magnificent in EDSG/DSG.

It was a direct competitor to being part of the same competition that included the Curtiss XBTC, Douglas XBT2D Skyraider and Kaiser-Fleetwings BTK.

Some Maulers were issued to navy or marine reserves as I recall.

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

The Mauler is apparently the old Siga kit with new bits.

All these just appeared on the Hannants Future Release page. Lots of 1/48 kits as well. I will leave the posting of those as an exercise for the reader.

No photo yet. But now is the time to prepare the paperwork to mortgage your house:

Oooh, yeah!  :-* Thinking about it, that Sentinel Chicken profile may actually be what spawned the thought in the first place.  ;D

Maverick's Marina Militare version also looks interesting.  :smiley:
