I think  there is or was a kit of that, and a conversion  kit too.


A zillion years ago RayHex did that T22 nose conversion, and there's been one more recently too.
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! :)

It MUST be going to happen, I have seen it on the internet!
Oh please Mr. AIRFIX do something silly and give us a kit of the Marut.
Imagine the alternate markings, Israeli, and no I am not going to go any further!
AND BIGGER BETTER ENGINES AS WELL.

I saw that today too, isn't  there a kit out of it either a&a or another  eastern European/ Russian outfit.  Or is that a different  Indian  aircraft.

Yes, there is, or was, a kit out of the Marut not that long ago.

But not an Airfix one....

Yeah, I knew there was one out there somewhere. Reading the review makes me even more certain that I want Airfix to do one!

I'm with you there.  :)  I've never built a resin model, and everything I've read about the building process reinforces that.  Maybe someday ... after all, I did eventually build a Vaccform.  :)

Well if Airfix did decide to make one, they don't have to go too far to scan one. Doing an image search reveals there's one at a German museum, only I don't know how old the photo is, to say if it's still there.  I'm guessing it is though ---
