Well, finally I could not wait anymore and got the Air Force one. The other kit will be for the pregnant version!

Thanks guys, Nice to be busy  with a kit that has some "stretch" in it, and thanks too, Colin for the shout-out to Susy for her careful packing, she's  very thoughtful  of the dangers of international shipping. Pity the Customs banged you over the head.

 

I'm also thrilled that I am not the only person that cannot resist the charms of the AD-5W with that giant radome underneath.I love stuff like that.

I would be in for one without any consideration.  If nothing else a conversion kit for the Kitty Hawk bird in 1/48.  Have wanted to build one for years.

Oddly enough I was actually daydreaming about just such a model not too long ago...I have a great affection for the Stoof as well as the Willy Fudd, though they would be awfully large in our chosen scale.

 

As for 1/48, the Tracer that Dmitri Malkov did for Collect-Aire is exquisite, I had one for a long time and let it go only when I realized 1/32 was going to be it for me.

Paul, I think the stoof would sell well. You could always go for the option of folded wings to decrease it's size. I think they look great with wings folded.

Coming very soon, decals must be printed and I want to get the last of the A-1E orders filled so things return to normal in here.

Maaaan, someone told me you were doing the Guppy, and me, old freightdog that I am, went nuts, thinking I'd finally get some decent bones for a righteous CL-44 build.....

 

talk about a letdown.

 

(OK, not really, but yes, in a way it was, because I love me some swingtail, too.)

Trumpeter A-1D/AD-4 secured for Guppy conversion!  Only took 3 tries to find one in stock somewhere, finally scored a great used kit at new prices.
