Liking a bunch.  :smiley:    Has very Sharpy McPointPointy nature about it.   Looks zoomy but not twisty & turny dogfighty.   I could be wrong on that.

It's the Jindivik you have when you find remote control a bore and seated on an orange crate in a Pika just won't cut it.

In other news, I've successfully made contact with p_d_m and have his blessing on using his artwork.

I don't think you are wrong, with that much mass on the wingtips, twisting and turning in a dogfight is problematic at best.  It strikes me as somewhat the equivalent of the F-104, a great interceptor but not a great dogfighter.

Perhaps the XP-65 "Warrior" would have been a tad more spritely than the Jindivik/Pika... ;)

Jingo's Les, with all those variants in the Profiles look like back to the Rendering Tools for alternate parts for the entire kit line.

Gotta start somewhere ! 

and yes Brian,  a variant line is definitely a commercial possibility !  ( and even one in 1/48 just to please someone...)

I see a clear case of self-gifting in the future.

Will the 1/72 kit include pylons?
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The first iteration won't as it's the prototype.   But as we progress and explore other variants I'll be looking at what's required.  The pylons seen on the 1/32 version here are taken from the Revell Mirage kit ( I have a couple or twelve in the stash ! )
I'm calling it the Irabinna being an indigenous word for "Warrior"
I'm thinking I might have to change the nomenclature for production versions to "CA-28" or similar after the prototype XP-65 gains its certificates !
