Here's hoping they get this one right, AND that a T-33 follows!

Is it me, or does the nose look skewed on that CAD image with no perspective printed on a piece of paper not very well secured to a wall and photographed from an awkward angle?  :banghead:

Dear Jonathan, yes!! The paper is not very well secured to the wall that's why the image looks distorted!! :hypnotised: 

I hope the kit to be good! I really do! I am painting right now it's boxart!! :doh:

The box art of another unannounced 1/48th HobbyBoss Shooting Star kit, the F-80A with the catalogue ref. 81723 .

Release: June 2013

So a F-80A, followed by a F-80C and, why not, later a RF-80A. The next logical step would be a new 1/48th T-33 T-Bird, isn't it?

Really strange!!! I did this box art and suppose to be secret! They announced the F-80C first, and In fact the above box art original painting still is on the way to China! How this scale models model shop has the image of it? Unless Hobby Boss published  the image i posted to them! Really strange!!! :hmmm:

After the F-80A & C, the recce RF-80A variant is also in view. As evidence a test shot on display at the Shizuoka Hobby Show 2013. 

The ejection seat is of a strange type?
