It will be the MPM/Special Hobby tooling.  Kit will be #4868.   That's all I know at this moment.

the MPM tooling with Revell Germany decals. Should be a nice effort.

The kit has some notable accuracy bugs and the general molding is not really up to date in character. Almost any new tool by a major company would be an improvement.

I can still remember some of the epic flame wars. Not much missed though, but it was certainly lively. Still, I got a chuckle out of your reply

of a reissue of a mediocre kit that is still readily available. I was hoping for an all new (and good) kit, but unfortunately its just a rebox. I would imagine the Revell reissue wont have any etch or resin included like the original either. Its no different than Tamiya putting an Italeri kit in their box which people always complain about.

The entire aft end is noticeably too short. The tooling looks like every other MPM kit I've seen.

Perhapse some enterprising resin caster will offer a plug to lenthen the fuselage I believe 6.6mm. I want to build a Cobra II racer as well as a military P39 Airacobra.

I'll probably end up correcting the fuselage with sheet styrene.

While at it 12 port exhaust stacks would be an excellent addition.

Anyone considering this?

.....since I've already bought and built the Special Hobby P-39D.
