An order from Hannants arrived this morning2 x 1/144 Revell A-10 Thunderbolt II's Eventually to be built as per the box but also to be used as a set of parts for moulding some engines for a little project I have.1 x Falcon Triple Conversion V bought mainly for the F4H-1 conversion partsGondor

I can't tell which this is... I ran the numbers and uhh.... According to wiki the U2's wingspan is 103 (feet) wide so I multiplied that by 12 to convert into inches then divided that number by both 48 and 72 and got 25.75 and 17 (and change), respectively. The box says it has a 20 inch wingspan. Either I'm not doing my math correctly (although I've checked it on models before and it lined up) or the U2 is an oddball size, or the box is full of milarkey. LOL Googling the kit tells me it's 1/48 so I'm going to assume that's correct and the people who made the canopies know what they're doing. Thank you for the tips on canopies, I found one (Squadron) for a bit over $10 U.S. so if I can't come up with the missing one or find a really good alternative method.. I know where it's at.

W/o box, decals and instructions, but who needs these, anyway...?

I'll do that. I'm curious now myself what's going on with the discrepancies. That converter is neat, thanks! Reports to follow on actually model size.... I have found this website useful when working out correct scale sizes: http://jbwid.com/scalcalc.htm However..... it says your maths is correct! I'd get the kit and measure it. It may be box-scale.

An Eduard 72 Spitfire mk IX "Royal Combo" off ebay - 50 notes seems quite reasonable for 4 kits.
