Nice work on the metal finishes!

You certainly nailed the intimidating nature of these brutes!

No loss of power thanks to the secret Canadian water-methanol-maple syrup injection systems that boosted performance.  :)

Thanks Jeff for blabbing to everyone about the "secret sauce".  Because of that I've had to reduced your security clearance from "Syrupy Secret" to "Sitka Spruce Secret"   :P

I'm thinking of modeling an A2D-2 with an Allison T54 (uses two T56 gas generators driving a common gearbox) and simplifying the canopy with a AD-1 bubble canopy.  Any problems that I missed?

How a Griffon powered Spad?
Really going to hurt load carrying and top speed as the Griffon, at best, has 500 HP less than the R-3350.

Agreed. But being from a country with a "surplus" of trees I am sure we can come up with some lighter papyrus bomb designs!

Glad to see it back in production.
Bought three when it came out, 20 years or so ago. It was a shame the company went under, as they were working on a night fighter version, and a couple of long body Ju-88's in 1/72 scale in the works. Got two of the Mistletoe 88's.
As I understand it, both owners had heart attacks, and that was the end of Amtec. Tamiya rented the Ta-183 molds, and that was the last time this mold was used.

Harley! Welcome aboard! I had thought the same, but  I understand the Ju 88 'Fuhrungmaschin' ( think I spelled it right ) was released, but it must have been in fairly small numbers - I never saw one.
