Are you kidding me!

I left 1/48 because they didn't have kits of the planes I really wanted. So I built up a decent stash of 1/72 kits and almost every plane I've wanted has been announced or released 1/48.  If Airfix announces a 1/48 Swift, Fulmar or Hunter; Or if anybody does a 1/48 Tiger, Cutlass,  or Pirate I'm gonna lose my mind.

Or perhaps I'll just fall into a nihilistic depression.

I have a few (maybe) useful FJ-3 images from Illustrated Parts Catalog[ue] etc which I will post over the next few days. Might be of use if someone is about to do the KH kit.

Sabrejet,

Wow! Awesome photos- thanks for sharing them! You wouldn't happen to have any VMF-235 FJ-2/3 photos, by any chance? The natural metal with the red bands really do it for me! Now. if Special Hobby can get off of their bottoms and release the FJ-2/3 they announced what seems like eons ago...

Not the best coverage for FJ-2s of VMF-235 and pretty much zero for FJ-3, but here goes:

Superb Fury pics, thanks for sharing.

 

I just hope that Kitty Hawk get this one right, and not make some of the shape blunders as they did with the Banshee.

Sabrejet, I have said this before, get a book published with the stuff you've got, there would be a lot of happy people...including me. :lipssealed:

Sabrejet,

 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The very ones I needed photos of! Now, if we just had a decent 1/72 or 1/48 FJ-2! I've got the1/72  Falcon vacform conversion, but my skills aren't up to tackling a model in that format, yet! Thanks again for the generous sharing of your archives! Ditto the book idea...we need a modelers guide for the Naval variants, the USAF ones, and the RAF/RAAF versions! (Hey, I can dream, can't I?)

Mike

Gray or blue?

 

Incidentally, I should point out that the above photos are a mix of credits: the late Bruce Robertson, Mike Fox, Tailhook Association and NAA Official. I will attempt to place credits with all future posts.

Why not both. It seems KH may be doing an early and late -3.

 

Nice collection of photos there too.
