Does anyone know if you can get kits or conversions of the twin seat P-39/P-63...preferably in 1/48:

How about, as we are doing a Scalorama build, a 1/48 Airacobra done as a 1/72 attack bomber, torpedo bomber, or dive bomber?

Most of the naval types, Devastator, Dauntless, Avenger, Barracuda etc. were about 50% larger than the P-39.  Using the Griffon, Sabre, Vulture or even some of the radial option suggested earlier in the topic for the required extra power, you could possibly also incorporate an internal bomb bay and maybe a 57mm Mollins gun in place of the 37mm Oldsmobile cannon.  A bubble canopy or glass house and one, two or three crew.  Maybe if its done as a tail dragger there could be a bomb aimers position in the nose.
