1/32 - Bell P-39Q/N Airacobra by Kitty Hawk - released

Recommended Posts

It's interesting to see that while billed as a Q, it has the integral wing guns, which I understand were not fitted to the Q, being replaced by the larger weapons in the underwing pods. So perhaps more than one version in the box?

Not if you leave all the "junk" out and close it up, the way it should look!

The guys at Kittyhawk are striving to get the finishing touches done on their next big 1/32nd kit – the Bell P-39Q Airocobra. Used by many countries in WWII and even beyond this unusual subject has always attracted modellers who like their engine in the back, propeller and guns in the nose and their car door properly opened!

I'll be interested to see this in the plastic when it does come out. Can we assume that the built-in wing guns and underwing gun pods are both shown for illustrative purposes? Unless my P-39 knowledge is less than I thought, it was the former (most variants) or the latter (-Q) but not both.

Markings for Shomo's a/c by the look of it - I may be tempted.
