Thanks Jon.

Didn't someone do a kit of that Model 200 back in the day ?


I believe you're right Chris, indeed I think the Venerabke Mike McEvoy built one too.

Right I am getting old  :banghead: It was Anigrand and I built one. My excuse is that, that illustration makes it look a lot slimmer than it is in the resin.  :angel:

Fred, there is a photo somewhere - maybe even here - of a single-boom, single engined P-38 based Drone with fixed landing gear.

I made one as a PR version and it's a pretty easy project. You could use a 2-seater conversion as the control ship...

Floor space between man in extreme rear and next man forward is access door, a non load bearing surface.

He had the old Omelet with Ham MRE before the flight.

in those days it'd have been the Chopped Ham & Eggs C-ration.  :)  Those things were potent before you ate them.  :D

It's an interesting looking aircraft and those wingtip mounted bombs have a somewhat elegant look about them.

One of the guys at the Redditch MRC has built a model of that in O gauge, and it's HUGE! I reckon he 'Scale-o-rama'd it as the Kombi is definitely NOT a 1/43 scale model, but most impressive nonetheless.
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! :)
