S.55. :wub: But 64 at Hannants.  I'll need to steal one. :police:

Is that the same kit as the original Delta SM.55?

I've had one of those for AGES, and it wasn't anywhere near 64, more like 1/4 of that price!
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! :)

$AU 99.  I can wait.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

And a couple of 1/48th KingCobras, including an interesting two-seater:

I've one somewhere in the stash and I hope this isn't a re-pop at that price

No, it's a completely new kit of the S.55A, which is quite different from
the version in the Delta kit.

It includes markings for Jahu, the only S.55 still existing.

Was going to get some of those S-55's but 64 quid is crazy. I need to eat and pay bills so no thanks. Pricing has gone totally beyond my comfort zone so I've slowed down buying massively. Going to buy from bargain bins/sales only from now on. Think I'll have to scratch bash something that looks a bit S-55ish instead.

I agree, I barely buy anything at the moment, too much money that I don't have.

Looking at that shot, it struck me that the S-55 is basically a flying wing.  If the price was (much) lower, it'd be worth bashing it into 1/144 or a 1/288 behemoth.

It is, and in 1/72 model form the wing area is GINORMOUS!  :o

I should Whiff mine into something 'different', perhaps with two Merlins on the roof? And turrets............  ;)

In separate nacelles with pusher props, similar to the tri-motor S.66.
