There is a Revell offering out there that needs to be beaten in order to allow succesd..... 

That is actually not a particularly high bar.  The Revell kit is a good place to start, but it is an "upgraded" snap-fit kit, with only one bomb-bay "open" (just, the doors fit in a weird

half-open position, and the bay is quite shallow), all control surfaces in the neutral position (which isn't seen on the ground at all, from what I can tell) and simplified detail all around.  It has a good, basic, external shape but that is about all.  It is best used as an "in-flight" model if one does not want to put work into it.

I bought and returned this last week. Pretty poor quality casting, seemed like a short shot. The points on the back were pretty warped and there seemed to be a few other points where the flow didn't reach the full extent of the mould. I should have taken pictures. 40GBP for a 1/144 scale kit is a tough ask to me with how much work would be required to get the basic shape correct. Really disappointed as it's one of my favourite aircraft!

Shame it's so bad amd expensive apparently. I have the Testors/Italeri 72 scale kit half-built in its box, atrocious thing it is too. A decent 144 scale kit would have been a nice replacement for it.
