    I found on the Tamiya web site that they have some planes released as a clear addition with additional items like fuel tanks. Has anyone seen them?

    The swordfish look good on their website. I hope to put the B25 on hold. I want to pick up an airbrush next month. I ran out of disposable income. It is torture to see the plane on the table unfinished but it will be worth the wait.

    Iv'e got the Me262 clear edition, you get the fuselage and engine nacelles in clear plastic and you get a couple of extra sprues not in the standard kit... fuselage fuel tanks and engines, plus Radio assembly, compass and oxygen bottles in rear fuselage.

    Though the clear kits give a better interior insight than a cutaway model I gotta say they aint my thing.

    Nice work, Vampirella.

    I'm mainly an R/C modeller, and it's always an eye-opener to see what really is inside full-scale aircraft. R/Cers are used to there being a lot of empty space in their models, and that simply isn't true of full-scales (at least, not since the late 1930's).
