Maybe Bird / White Cat have improved BUT I bought their V-1 Wotan 1/72 WCM Bausatz rar selten and it was a dogs breakfast - it would have been nice if the round parts were round :) , unfortunately their TA183 nightfigher was similar. I onsold both on ebay. The same applies to their Flugscheibe RFZ-2 "Wärmflasche" if you look at their photo. I love the look of their subjects just not game to try again.

That's pretty neat. Looks old, or they used really old decals.

Well yeah, the US Navy was cheap like that at times.  Budgets being tight and all - what with the construction of all those new super carriers and such.  So, yeah, sometimes the vendors they used for their aircraft marking decals were pretty cheap..

Do these things sell?
I feel like we should buy them up and create a museum of Whiff.

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

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

AFAIK it is rare that such things pop up - as a whif AND in decent quality. Also very different how well and for how much they sell - normally, it is a pity what sellers get for their effort. Unless you have/put swatikas on the kit, then you can be certain that some target groups (esp. in the USA) get hooked.

This seller had/has some other nice whifs online, too, like an XP-56 in a similar livery.

Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

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! :)
