Ah Ha! just what I wanted to see, I need a few of those. The Seafang is more to scale than the Spiteful that they also do, I've got one of each and was surprised to find they were different in size. I'd say the Spiteful is about 1/75 to 1/77 scale.

Coming soon.  And I just bought the Mach 2 kit.

Work in progress ::

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

Where are the weapons there?  I presume one could add wingtip Sidewinder rails but that's about it.  You'd definitely need to re-engine it, though, with reliable and more powerful engines (shoehorn a pair of J79s in there?)

I did not see any sprue shots (yet).  If none, then off to spares box. In addition to your re-engine, maybe mixed propulsion with a rocket like the SR.53 and bigger wings are must have.

Rocket motor under the "stinger" for the tail surfaces?  I wonder how these wings compare in size to F-104 wings?  As a thought, enlarge the wings while keeping the front and rear sweep the same by putting the 1/72 wings outboard of a set of 1/48 wings from the old Lindberg 1/48 X-3.

The Attacker is a reissue, or possibly a re-boxing, as I've built it.

Typical AZ product. Needs a little care and attention, but providing you do that it's fine. Although I do seem to remember some "fun" with a wing root now I come to think of it. Did mine in BSP colours to join my collection of BSP aircraft during the 1946 assault on the Japanese Home Islands.
