  1. Hello, I did some research on the various versions of the Kingcobra preparing for the build of a model in 1/72 and noticed one detail which is never mentioned in the version details, nor taken into accounts by the kit manufacturer. If you look at an early mark, such as this P-63A from Monino, you'll see two intakes per side: the smaller one is really tiny and often invisible when looking from the side or covered by the shadow of the fuselage in most of the full picture images you can find online. This is the configuration that every plastic kit I could look at usually reproduce, even the very recent Dora Wings kits. If you consider a later mark though, for example this P-63E from the USAF Museum... ...or this P-63E from the Pima Museum... ...or again this Commemorative AF P-63F, you will notice that there is only one slightly wider intake per side. If my observations are correct you need to correct this detail in any kit to make a late mark , and this seem on the whole quite feasible, though I'm interested to know the reason for this change which is not usually documented. Any Kingcobra expert willing to contribute?
  2. Hi guys, Here is my build of the 1/48 P-63C King Cobra from MPM. This is already a started build, but not beyond the 25% mark. I started to build this I think 8 years ago, so it was a shelf queen. After the opening I saw why, the vac canopie is yellowed. But I will still build it as it is a great opportunity to do now. Here are the pictures. There is no box art, as I have lost the box long time ago and the kit is in another easier box to use. the started cockpit. the yellowed canopies The decals and the instructions As you can see there is also a decal sheet and instructions for a F version in the box. This also has a resin tail for it. Cheers,
