my Pegasus kit has the original price sticker on the end, £3.50............ :o

What was the pound worth back when the Arc grounded ------     ;D ;D :wacko:

About a sheckel and a half I think.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Sheckels?  That late in the day?
I thought you were going to say 3-4 mammoth skins :D

I'm interested to see what those Mustangs look like. The new KP stuff seems to be ok if Jaybee's recent build is anything to go by

They look realy good in the sprue shots and built pics on Britmodeller though if you like "things under wings" you have to use your own spares or resin from KP (or any favourite supplier).

The Su-12 was a late WWII design, as an observation aircraft - similar role as the Fw 189, which obviously inspired it, but the Su-12 was bigger. Project was developed further, and IIRC cancelled in 1947 because the need and role of this kind of aircraft had become obsolete. Anyway, it bears much whiffing potential...

There had been a Su-12 kit before (old school raised panel lines, lots ov rivets - Airfix style), and the KP offering just looks like a re-issue of it:



Anyway, still a cool aircraft.  :mellow:

The obvious thing to do with that Su-12 is put it in German markings then watch all the Luftwaffe experts scratch their heads over it.... :wacko:

Nah, North Korean.

The MSV one has recessed detail.  Not a bad kit, although I've yet to finish mine.

Hehehe, love that idea!  :thumbsup:

Put inlines on it to add even more to their confusion?  :wacko:

You might laugh, but I plan to mate my Su-12 with the cockpit section and maybe Jumo engines from a Ju 188 - front wheel included. Inspired by a night fighter from the "The Sky Crawlers" anime.  :wacko:
