Just for giggles I did the scale-o-rama numbers for the 98in3 Offy Midget twin-cam
four-cylinder engine in the other version of the Revell kit.
It comes out at around 295in3/4.8L. :wacko:

Interesting. I wonder what they used for the canopy, it works very well on the Sea Hawk.  :thumbsup:

It does doesn't it.  Makes it look like a bought one.

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

It's like a half width EA-6B canopy to look at, weird.  :o

Does look nice.  :thumbsup:
As for the canopy source: Aero L-29 Delfin?  :unsure:
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

I agree, it looks painted on to opaque plastic (maybe from a drop tank - speaking of which, they look like Soviet tanks, like on a Su-25).
Whatever.

This works surprisingly well, even though the front end still looks very German?

It's a German engined Italian airframe originally, isn't it?
