Scale confirmed: 1/48th Seen in the AFV-Club Facebook. Definitely a Lockheed U-2 or TR-1 outrigger wheel 3D render. Considering it's AFV-Club - a Taiwanese company - , I’ll bet it will be the U-2C most commonly used by the RoCAF Black Cat Sqn (link). Cross my fingers for a new tool 1/48th Dragon Lady kit... But I fear she'll be in 1/144th scale. To be followed. Source: https://www.facebook.com/AFVCLUB.TW/photos/a.1888884937823683/1894502393928604/?type=3&theater V.P.
I saw Bridge of Spies a few weeks ago and quite enjoyed the film. The U-2 sequences where very good, dramatic license aside, and it wasn't long before I had checked out a few books from the library on Lockheed's Skunk Works and the U-2. The next step was to see what kits were available. I was somewhat disappointed to discover that there were no kits currently in production and unless I could find something on eBay, I was out of luck. Well, as luck would have it, soon after I started looking one or two popped up on eBay UK. The one I liked had a low starting price so I put a bid in and waited. Only one other bidder joined in but didn't seem to want it as much as I did so I won the auction. The box was a little worse for wear and many of the parts had broken off the sprue tree but it was all there. It is an old kit, however, and not at all cutting edge but, based on drawings I have since acquired, I think the general overall shape is good and it just cries out for a little scratch building and super detailing. Which I am more than happy to get stuck into now that I'm giving the Camel a bit of a rest. I've started on the cockpit and will post a couple of photos tomorrow. Meanwhile: pic in a minute.
