It would appear that another 1/72 Mitsubishi J4M Senden is in the works. Unicraft has one but the quality is well Unicraft.

Is that labelled a J4M1?  It looks like it could also be a Ki-98.

They do look similar; at least parts for the Ki-98 were under construction at the end of the war. The Meng Ki-98 was a fun kit to build. Too bad it's long OOP. It's unlikely this Mikro Mir kit will be as enjoyable.

Yes!  I always liked the markings on  Canadian Airways' CF-ARI (with the red band around the rear fuselage.

But here's a couple of postwar mods ...

Looking at those sprue gates you might be better off building it. Glad I built mine from the resin kit, can't remember the maker off hand.

That might have been Whirlybirds Chris, they got most of the Project X and Maintrack Models moulds.   I remember a plan I had for the DH.108, a proof of concept DH Vixen smaller scale FTB. I think this will be a go now as I also wanted to build an RW DH.108. An article in Air-Britain's AeroMilitaria was about the RN using Vampires (could have been Venoms) to train the ground crews on carrier handling of the Sea Vixen, could be something alone the same lines.
