Did I miss the inter-office memo? Is there a F5U kit coming?

Kitty Hawk announced a 1/32nd kit & then changed it to 1/48th --- someone else has also announced a 1/32nd kit of it .... don't know when or if they will appear.

Another possible scheme ? ....

1/48 bashed as 1/72 makes right sized for attack or light bomber with room for ordnance.
1/32 bashed as 1/72 makes right sized for bomber between B-25 & B-17.  Like the Betty is.
Interesting bashing possibilities !

Add some turrets, bombardier's bubble etc.

What about the props? Smaller but more blades. 6 or 8?

What does it need an arrester hook for ?, it can fly slower than the fastest the ship can do.
