The NAA Savage is one subject that I really wish the model companies would consider producing.

Quite!!  I really wouldn't mind seeing some other companies do the XA2J-1 also.  Unlikely to happen, but one can wish. :-[

@Greg/GTX, guess having just one of those CollectAire kits is not enough to get a proper injection moulded kit in 1:48th scale. 

Looks to me like you need to buy another one to get this party started. :smiley:

Donate the engine nacelles to a turboprop B-45 and fit the wings from an A3D or B-66 to the A2J fuselage and tail, though you'd likely need to do some modifying of the fuselage to get the CG correct.

Convair Portage "what if" profile by Christopher Reed, on Flickr

The Convair Portage - early postwar concept for a flying boat powered by a quartet of Wright T-53 turboprops. Payload would have been 50,000lbs over a 5,000 mile range. A what-if profile as a water bomber, with a paint scheme derived from that of the Martin Mars.
