The PL.1 proposal in Battle Flight also shows a Genie recessed in the belly pack.
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Just in time to go nicely with this, Eduard have released a set of top-notch Bullpups:

The Venerable Mike McEvoy has built a prototype one of these GA Lightnings from the Freightdog set, see his comments on the GOM page here, toward the bottom of the page :-

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! :)

Mikes been itching to do a shark mouth lightning for ages.

The Atlas has also been on the cards since he found out Revell were down scaling their kit to 1/144th

I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Here's another thought re these: if you've got the Freightdog EE P.12 kit and an Airfix Canberra B(I).8 to apply it to, then you're going to have two very nice AS.30s going spare, and they would go a treat on this Lightning FGA conversion.
