It looks fantastic! I hope I understood that properly. Two models in one box! I wonder what the price is?

Indeed:  two complete 1/48 F4U models, that is, one F4U-1A and one F4U-2. So a 2-in-1 kit.

Features of the kit:

1. Wings can be built to fold and unfold positions.

2. Overall detailed rivets and lines in skin replicated.

3. Accurate engine appearance and external details replicated.

4.  Instrument panel parts without details for modelers to use aftermarket 3D decals easily.

5. Optional positions for separated rudder control surface, flaps and ailerons.

6.  Exhaust pipes goes with different engine models included.

9.  Bomb bay can be built open, with gun and belt provided for your preference. 

10. Rich details of landing gear and wheel well.

11. Finely printed decals included for 4 painting schemes

12. Fine PE included.

I'm hoping, given the wording here, they're talking about a/the "gun bay/s", not a "bomb bay".

Missed the weapons sets & the Iron Dome earlier. They look very tempting! 8)

But, if the Iron Dome costs anything like the various Patriot systems, that will be staying on the store shelves for someone else to buy. ::)

I’m pretty sure they mean gun bays but the Corsair did have bomb bays in the wings for anti aircraft bombs, meant to be drop on enemy aircraft formations. Such was a theory back in the 30s that didn’t last long once the war started. The wings on the Corsair barely changed over the years so IIRC the bomb bays were always there.

Nice, wondered when a CVN78 would show up.   Next is the 1/350 kit to build as 1/700 for a length of 2209 feet.   Hopefully has waterline option as well so don't have to cut hull like did with Mega-carrier and would be about 100 feet longer.

http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=8408.0

BTW -- notice all catapults are same length.   Unlike CV67/Mega-carrier with one longer catapult on port side which can launch loaded B-29s.   Deleted the shorter port catapult.

Could go well with these;



From Greenstrawberry in multiple scales (OK, 1/35 & 1/20 ... but that's still multiple).

Just found this in my Faceplace feed, and on Scalemates:

1/35 MRZR D4 (2 kits in the box?)

I've seen this (or very similar) Polaris vehicles getting heavy use in some videos from Ukraine, especially from the K-2 combat brigade of the 54 OMBR

A C-17 is so big that an MRZR is often needed to shuttle the crew from the ramp to the cockpit.
Where can we get a 1/35 C-17?

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