This is a kitbash using a ready built 1/72 Do 335B Pfeil and spares off a Revell Fairey Ganne, plus the radome to be found on the  Avro Shackleton AEW.2 kit.




The rear tail wheel fitted to the fin.



The front view

I don't think it's a Double-Mamba , but contra-rotating propellers.

Painting has begun on a dessert scheme.

Is this turboprop for the front propellers and piston for the rear propeller? :unsure: <_<
