The Black Widow kits do look good-  Guess my old AMT kit is doomed to the stash forever.

Good thing I didn't buy Airfix B from the bay of evil, then ;D

Certainly going to be the "Hunter" for the A-25K "Killer" (aka 75mm B-25H with 60's mods) in SEA. Probably going to get a few Lepus flares from the old Airfix GR.3 Harriers, which were tested IRL for possible adoption by USAF in said theatre.

Yikes - that's a 'Pink Team' you'd want to mess with even less than the RW one!
What about making the A-25 with twin 75mms?  :o

Another P-61 variant, but one that should please some of the 1/35th builders, the Delta Force Fast Attack vehicle after years in the catalogue looks like it will actually be out this summer !!!  :o :o :o

It is a P-61B version, Dizzy - no dorsal turret.  The turret caused buffeting problems on the "A" model and so was removed.  After the buffet was fixed, it was reinstated on the "C".   The A and B models were more numerous than the "C" and saw more service before the end of WWII.  It looks like a suitable version to use to produce either an "E" or an F15 recce version (which requires a new fuselage, with a tandem cockpit.

I hope they get the "C" version right then, it had a more powerful engine with an extra cooler added under the cowling and different wide chord propeller blades. This should be the one to use to do an "E" properly too. Lets hope -----   I has started all the corrections on an "E" I have in the stash, I think I'll wait now to see what transpires.

And generate many complaints from those who don't build in that scale.

Good thing it's not Hasegawa, it'd cost TEN times that much!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
