As far as I'm aware yes Kit. It's one of the NACA test fits when the aircraft were handed over to them

The Dryden Flight Research Center image archives are good place for photo's although this configuration is not shown:

Sweet. Is that a fuel tank under the fuselage? It is there because of voracious fuel appetite the of the Goblin engine?

No, it was a pod that housed up to eight machine guns for the ground attack role.

How long before someone makes a conversion kit to back-date it to the pusher prop version?  ;D
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! :)

Be easier to release the resin to smart up the old Heller one.

That's good news, it's a lovely little kit and has loads of Whiff potential.  :thumbsup:

Oh yeah! Like the planned J 21B, with bubble hood and more powerful engine (DB 605E or RR Griffon)
