ok,what's new in the sprue other than the decal sheet? I can't see any additional new parts for the latest variant of the WB-57F?

Kampartiger, nothing that I can, see at least it could do with the fuselage instrument pallets and the wing pods, they do very occasionally fly with out these it is very seldom. It would have been nice if they could have included the new toned down scheme, but that would include even more airframe mods and seeing as the kit is more representative as the first RB.57F than the "production" RB/WB.57F. The following photos are three of my MACH2 builds the last one RB.57F is out of the box except the seats which unless you are building the first F will need replacing with 1C-6 ESCAPAC seat. I started a build on my site which has stald for the time being but it can be found here it covers some of the mods needed. http://ipmscanberrasig.webs.com/apps/forums/topics/show/9128697-mack2-wb-57f-nasa-long-wing?page=1

Canberrakid, Those are really great R/WB-57s and though the kit is expensive,I figure I should get one and start with the latest variant of the WB-57. But that will involve a lot of guessing especially with the 'things' behind the canopy. Your website will be of a great help,thank you!
