Odd - you can get Resin and Vacuform but no injection styrene:


Hawk did a 1/48 injection kit of the XP-90, it was reboxed by Aurora as a F-90A (and appeared in 13 different boxings)

Speaking of F-90s, what about a 332d Fighter Group (Tuskegee Airmen) F-90 in bare metal with red tail/nose carrying on the WWII scheme:

Just added this to my Hannants cart for my next purchase:

Tuskegee Red Tailed Mustangs (7)

Work in progress ::

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

Love it.
Perfect companion IMO is YB-60. Another beauty.

and if you buy Anigrand's 1/44 kit of the YB-60, you also get a XF-90 (amongst other things):



Maybe do a flying diorama of a Red Tailed XF-90 escorting an operation B-60 on a mission... ;)

Just had a thought on the cause of the war.  Japan is very lucky through 1942, perhaps there carriers survive Midway, and a stalemate is reached in the Pacific leading to an armistice in late 42 early 43.  The Allies concentrate on Germany but remain very concerned about Japan and following their liberation the French and Dutch are very agitated about their lost colonies.
