Recce version F2H-2P is cancelled

Latest News from Kitty Hawk Kit Cancellations

Kitty Hawk Models has announced that the 1/32 F11F Tiger project has been cancelled because of a projected lack of sales. If you disagree, you can let them know on their Facebook page or if you prefer a 1/48 F11F Tiger, you can let them know that as well. They've also indicated that while the F2H-2 and F2H-3 are still coming, the F2H-2P has also been cancelled.

I'd preferred the Big Banjo F2H-3 first, but the F2H-2 is OK.

How long till this is released? I've been waiting impatiently. It was supposed to have been released by now. There has never been a good kit of this aircraft. My grandfather was in a squadron the had Banshees in the late 50's, and I can't wait to build it for him.

Kittyhawk was at the model show this last weekend. I spoke to the rep and inquired about the status of the Banshee. He said the first variant, the F2H-2, will be released by Christmas, with the -3 next year. I hope this holds true. I have been waiting quite a while for this kit.

The F2H-2P has been cancelled ! :weep:

I should've figured that would happen. The model companies hate recce aircraft, as they aren't as glamorous or exciting as fighters or bombers.

Oh well, one more company to boycott. :nono:

Don't look like it's cancelled to me..

The F2H-2P has been cancelled !

Straight from Kitty Hawk, the F2H-2P nose will be in the box.

Happy Father's Day (for those who celebrate it today),

Interesting how the company has flip-flopped their decision.

I will wait & see, when the kit is finally released.

Larry, it was nothing nefarious, just working out how to include the nose which they did. It is far better to ask the company directly than assume online.

I'm glad to see this finally being released, however, a little disappointed that it is not the -3 version. I assume it will follow (hopefully).

Kittyhawk, if you're reading this, pretty please do these markings so I can make this kit for my grandpa. VF-52 Sealancers, USS Ticonderoga 1958-1959.

This looks great, always fancied doing another -2P (after the Airfix 72nd version), so will be getting this!

Looks good to me apart from the access panel, although I'm sure the Red Line Brigade will be along to point out all the errors.
