I know, I know...how "unoriginal"...But, it's something I've had in my stash (out of maybe six 1/32 scale kits). And growing up as a kid,it was my favorite fighter aircraft. I loved the shark mouth and this aircraft is synonymous with it, but much to my disappointment, discovered that it was an "average" fighter at best.
My original intent was to build Robert Lee Scott's mount, but this is Winkle's build, so I might opt for RAF's 112 squadron -- the originators of the shark-mouth scheme.
Mostly OOTB and another "learning" build. It's a a big aircraft! I have Revell's G-6 on the bench at the moment and the Kittyhawk looks portly in comparison!
