By contrast with the somnambulant felid, this has me hunting for a time machine in order to save my younger self ... who once tried to bodge together a 1/72 'bubble-top' FR Mk.XIVe out of a Frog XIV and a Hawk Mk.22 fuselage  :P

My favourite Mk of Spitfire, so looking forward to this.

The Sword kits take a little bit of care, but they go together o.k. if you take your time. What with this set and the new tool Airfix Mk V due it's looking like a good last quarter of the year.

Are you sure the Airfix MkV is a new tool?  I gathered their Mk Va was simply a decal variant of their Mk I.

Any sign of those Avengers hitting the market? One has got to have RCN marking options.

A quick check finds all three, plus a TBM-3W listed on Ebay (at least from the USA).
