Well I do really have some 1/48 scale planes, all of my very favorite aircraft --- I think it might be about 12 to 15 but I can't remember exactly. I found one in my stash which I'm having problems figuring out why I bought it --- an Airfix EE Lightning

Oh yes I have 1/48 kits that contribute parts to 1/72 scale-o-ramas.

@Robert/KitNut617 - discoveries such as you describe happen quite often in my stash :)

Usually the discovery is of a 1/72 scale kit, but as I don't have very many 1/48, the Lightning is baffling me --- I may just move it on at sometime (along with a bunch of 1/144 scale kits, or the occasional 1/200 one)

With two or three engines in the rear.  Given the power of early engines, you might want three, maybe even four.

Hmm, use for and scalorama it to 1/72 as a competitor to the B-45 and XB-46?
