Heck, as the post above shows I've been waiting two years for this!  Trouble is, now that pound is low I don't think I can afford the 50 to buy it, after already shelling out a similar amount on the Anigrand T-4MS.

Why do things happen this way?!?!? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

"possible layout for civil version"
so that leaves some scope for a "military" transport or bomber? 
 Is this the new "bombcorde?"

Fantastic Plastic has released the 1/144th scale B-3 Stealth Bomber from Broken Arrow, mastered by Scott Lowther. http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/B-3BomberCataloguePage.htm

Can't afford one unfortunately ($85/59,55p) but it does look very good.

Here's my prototype build of the Convair 49 Advanced Aerial Fire Support System (AAFSS) in 1:72. Produced by Anigrand Craftswork exclusively for Fantastic Plastic Models, this is the first kit ever produced of this truly weird-#*@((!&#$ flying whatzit.

http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Convair49Page.htm

Building the model with the cockpit angled at 90 degrees proved to be something of a challenge as there's no specific hinge mechanism provided -- nor discussed in the limited technical docs we used to develop the kit. My solution was rather simple: I bent a stiff wire at a 90-degree angle, drilled a hole in the back of the cockpit and one in rotor core and -- voila! Instant support. (The resin "piston" behind the cockpit provides further stability.)

I painted the kit overall NATO Green and gave it several coats of Testors Dullcoat for a nice matte finish.

Although the kit comes with both U.S. Army and USMC decals (courtesy of JBOT), I went with the Army scheme seen in most historical illustrations of the concept.

The kit will be released tomorrow! (April 7)

Forgot to add

The Talon is now out from the movie Stealth.

Those of us who were kids in the late 70's will love this as another Scifi kit announced is the Starfighter from Buck Rodgers  ;D.

Those with a passion for sci-fi can soon try pitching Star Wars fighters, against Battlestar Galactica fighters and now Buck Rodgers all in in 1/7s scale  ;D
