Mentioning Mach 2 kits I was thinking of the WB-57 kit. Better start it now........


Much to my surprise, that one turned out to be one of their better efforts when I did my RAF version last year.

Having a relatively small canopy helped of course, much less area for them to roughen up!
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! :)

Regards

I too have had a go at building this kit. I had to use the Italeri RB-57 landing gear and the clear canopy as the Mach2 kit was a bit wonky. I also fitted the  EF-111A Football receiver to the tail and RB-57G fittings. I haven't finished this yet.
