    Aftermarket, Nope, not a darn thing. OOB, I swear.
    I just want to do a strict OOB model, just to clear my head.
    I'll let you all know how that works out.
    I started out with a dark green interior as per research for P-47 cockpits. And a black primer if I decide to include a pilot.

    This would have been my number two entry, but can't do much with one bl00dy arm.

    How much did this baby cost yah???
    Cheapest one of that one is 32 bucks from China includes postage.
    The Revell N is 33 bucks from the UK.
    Which is the one I would be after.
    Whats your impression of the kit?

    Just an old question box.

    16 bucks at the LHS, which isn't very local. I had to take my daughter up to Asheville the other day so I stopped in.
    It is standard Monogram quality, Revell has improved the I.P. I think. No flash to speak of, should be a quick build.
    Karl, I will be doing the O.D. over grey, with kit markings for "Okie" a fighter bomber with a pretty impressive record.

    Good one Paul. It's still a nice kit, despite it's age. I've built a few of these over the years, and have one in the stash now, courtesy of Karl.

    Ah yes - "Little Kits Inc" - I forgot about that! Must find a good 9th AF Olive Drab/Neutral Grey subject for mine.

    Watching this one(lots of photos puleeze) as I have bought 3 of eBay to be built as formation ships. Bill, I got these from S.Korea for under 30$, shipping included on 2 of them though it did take over 3 months to find the right prices. Bring it on, Paul.
