I thought I was going to have to order an XP-55.  But thankfully for my bank account it's the wrong scale.
Phew.
 :angry:


Someone does a 1/72 XP-55 'cos I've got one, but I can't remember who made it and I'm 120 miles away at the moment.

MPM I think, I've got one too

Yup I have the MPM one in the stash as well. It's one of their older kits in the "white" box.

I have some older MPM kits.  They are a bit "curate's egg".

I can live without an XP-55 I think.  Just.

Just seen a video on Modelsvit's Facebook page, of the landing gear having working suspension in it.

Assuming that's a 1/72 Fitter next to it then I have room for one of them...


...just not the money.

Assuming it is then it's not quite as big as I thought it would be. Still a tad on the large size, but not as much so.

It would go nicely beside the two C-5's and two 747's I have (in 1/72 that is)  ;D
