Early Sea Vampire would be nice aswel, with the arrestor housing/fairing, probably limited market though.


I want one for my collection anyway, so... :D

Would like to see the high altitude version 🙂 On the other hand I guess it is still available from Alicat.


It's on the "to-do" list, need to figure out how to best do the canopy!

T11 conversion, perhaps 😉

It wasn't the conversion I couldn't see catching on but Amos being happy with what was on offer, no demands. Sorry if I'm over literalising this. :shrug:

The conversion looks cool, I've a similar one in injected plastic from Jays models in 1/72, it is a neat idea.
