An instant Whif-in-a-box by the description:

FROG - RAAF / USAF BOEING B-47 STRATO - JET

Has to be, as no B-47 flew in RAAF colours, although the US did offer the B-47 as an "interim" bomber to replace the Canberra in RAAF service until the F-111 became available.  Two aircraft toured downunder as a bit of blatant politiking during the 1963 federal election but the type was complete unsuitable for RAAF use in reality.

That's about 61!  :o

Can't you still get new ones from Hasegawa, or are they even MORE expensive?
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! :)

Is that a whif?  :unsure: I wouldn't put it past the Soviets to come up with something like that.  :lol:

Of course, now somebody will have to kit-bash a Hercules and a Chinook or two.  :wacko:

No, it was a genuine project.

There's an 1:48 scratchbuilt one:

And some discussion about the aircraft, and the respctive kit from Poland:

And this one is probably the one you refer to?

Never heard of it before, but it looks nice/odd/interesting. Could imagine that a 4-tone cammo paint scheme and some ordnance could suit it well?

Dizzyfugu,

I picked one of those up and found it a rather well done little kit.  Nothing terribly fancy and definitely a "garage/ short run" rendering but rather crisply done for all that said.

Anyone know about THIS from Poland?

Looks nice, nevertheless!

Theres the PZL Skorpion if somebody is after one
And the trader is a decent bloke. Ive dealt with him a number of times in the last 2-3 years
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
