Hello dear friends.

Today is a sad date, 500 days since the beginning of Russia's military aggression against my homeland Ukraine.

Despite all the horror that is happening around, I want to thank you for staying with us all this time and supporting us with kind words and your orders, which allowed us to survive in this nightmare.

We continue to work.

Our new conversion for 1/48 scale Tamiya model, XP-47H.

This set will go on sale in two weeks.

We have also finished work on conversion and 1/32 scale for the Trumpeter set, I will publish photos of the first castings in the near future.

Best regards from Ukraine, Andrey.

I hope that they will release a 1/72 version of this kit as well...

You beat me to it; however, I'm thinking that so much resin will be expensive, so if I just can't live without a pointy-nosed Thunderbolt powered by a Chrysler hemi (the original!), I'll have to dig out the old MPM one from the megastash. Wish me luck - if you don't hear from me again, send in the first responders to pull me out from under the avalanche of storage boxes. I wonder if the MPM fuselage, prop, and spinner can be used to convert a Tamiya P-47D in 1/72...

Mmmm, I like.

 

Withe their obvious focus on interesting Mustangs and Thunderbolts, I'm starting to wonder whether we might one day see Halberd do the XP-51F/G/J. Which would be wonderful!

I was getting used to the prospect of having to scratch build the conversion ( I have the old Airfix Magazine with the 1/72 details in ) and now I can have it in 1/48, and it looks really good. 

I'll have to get the order in sharpish. ( Every time I dither when something like this comes along I leave it too long )

Somebody was working on this on a video on YouTube, but I'm not sure he's finished it out yet.

I’m excited for this one too. Andrey will have them available for release as soon as he can. He lives very near the front lines in Ukraine and his area gets shelled quite regularly, so plenty of things out of his control can delay the release.

Test shots look good. I bought a similar conversion from 109 models in the USA (or something like that) and grafted a Monogram kit to it. A bit rough round the edges, but an interesting model. This new offering looks a lot more refined.
