    Sorry...thought you meant our Wildcat, he of the Vultee Vengeance fetish on this forum. Robotic felines? Meh! :)

    Then again, I wouldn't want our Wildcat chasing me while firing 5.56s out of his tusks!

    Hey, some of us have multiple fetishes...I like the Vengeance too, remember! And the Boomerang, CW-21B, F3D-2, Whirlwind, Hudson, Javelin, EE Lightning, Lysander, Mosquito, Blenheim, P-66, Hurricane, Wirraway, Skua/Roc, Defiant, P-43 etc etc etc.

    BTW, did you hear that AZModel is reworking their 1/48 Vengeance? Apparently the sole survivor at Camden is due to be measured sometime in the next couple of weeks. Maybe one day we'll actually get a decent kit of the cranked-wing bird!

    :lol: Seriously though, you have great taste in aircraft Mark!

    I did read that somewhere. I haven't gotten their Vengeance yet because I thought it would be beyond my skill level. A new tooling is very tempting though...

    Yeah, the price of the AZModel kit scared me - $80 is bad enough but paying that much for a kit that is badly mis-shapen isn't even remotely funny. Ofcourse one could buy the resin kit to correct the faults...which is another $80 and the only parts used from the AZModel kit are the wings. Oh, but the resin conversion introduces other errors. Sorry...$160 and still not an accurate representation of the crank-winged beast is simply not within the bounds of common sense.

    Here's hoping the AZModel revamp gets it right. Apparently, they're also reworking the nose and underfuselage lines of their 1/48 Saab J-29 Tunnan...that's another one on my list in UN markings with the funky blue/green/orange camo pattern...but that's yet another sad fetish! :)
