I will not build this one anyway, but the single engine one. I have ordered the Mustang kit because I needed tubes of putty and they will come together to my home, but a single Mustang, not 3... :-\ ;D

If you order an F-82 that would be only one more kit..........

Too late: the order has been sent days ago.
And remember the F-82 was not at all a double Mustang (source: book "Edgar Shmued, Mustang designer"), but adding Mustang canopies to a twin-fuselage independent (far bigger) drawing (RD-1410 if I remember well).

The Mustang kit arrived quickly from France, but I am still waiting for the Boeing 390 coming from Ukraine.

This afternoon, I had the great joy  ;D to receive the Boeing 390!
Igor has been very efficient in urgent delivery (I told him I may be absent, in hospital, if the parcel comes late)...

With a few drops of glue, the project takes shape already...

Hmmm - you've out-ovaled the Spitfire's wings ... I didn't think that possible!  :D  Well done!    :mellow:
