Oddly enough, they provide the photo NOSE but not the photo decals.  :banghead:

You'll need the original Airfix boxing of it Brad, that does have the recce nose decals.

Thanks, brotha! I may as well pick one up anyway so that I can build both version so that works out quite well indeed.

Yes the original AIRFIX kit had the PR markings in it.
I used my lot on my F2H-3P Banshee way back in 2012.

How annoying.  I didn't realise that.

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.

Wheee!! That is nice! I hope mine comes out like that.

Yeah!! I don't really see why it wouldn't be included.... pretty weird. Could be a mildly interesting story behind it all...

MPC was the USA arm for Airfix (same as USAirfix), all they did was rebox the Airfix kits but with a different decal sheet. So what came as plastic in the box was just reproduced.  I've got a few MPC kits and they're all the same format, identical plastic, different decals.

One time, I bought the reboxing of the HP Halifax because the box art shows a solid nose version, anything plastic like that in the box ---- nope -- just the decals for it.

I bet it wasn't intentional then, they probably simply didn't notice or pay too close enough attention to the sprues! Probably a "not my job" type of deal.  ;D Or, simple cost-cutting. That's just as likely I suppose.  :angel: :wacko:

Either or both.

I wound up with a US boxing of the A-26 in Black, with the transfers for the Korea version only...

That MPC Halifax box is interesting, not seen that before. Cheers  :thumbsup:

Reminds me of something, someone like Eduard would do in one of their various styles of boxings ? White Box Plus series perhaps  :rolleyes:

I am seeking 1/48 F-4 Phantom drop tanks.  If anybody has any to spare, it would be appreciated.    :thumbsup:

Anyone have a SPARE (don't go breaking up a kit or anything... if no one has one, I'll come up with another solution) canopy for a single seater F-16? I have an old Monogram F-16A sans canopy.....   I imagine another brand would work maybe, depending, so that would be fine, too I guess.

I may have one if I can find it. I don't build F-16s, and I used the landing gear from one on my Hawker P.1086 a few years ago.

I'll see if I can find it.
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! :)

Cheers!!  David, 63cpe, has an Italeri one but naturally I'd go with whichever is closest to the monogram one. I think a whole slew of them were made under Revell that were the same tooling.   :unsure:   

Don't spend too much time looking for it. I have plan B and C now so it's not too critical. It just irks me to have parts missing from things.  :banghead:
