Try more like the Nixon admin for the P2V.Lynn Ritger wrote:You're right about the poor design qualities... the CG was all jacked up and the fuselage wasn't long enough to counter a nasty "snaking" motion in the original versions. They got it mostly sorted out though, and it did see a fair amount of service in the Med as well as with the Hungarians. It never fails to amuse me to see companies pour money into Napkinwaffe crap like the Nazi Frisbee but completely ignore actual significant aircraft which have an interesting history of their own, such as the Me 210 or Curtiss P-36 (and no, don't mention the Hobbycraft kit, it's fair but the type deserves a much better kit).Whitey wrote:Probably because there are nice Me-410 kits out.

Yet we got more variants of the Gekko than they had in real airplanes, not to mention all the Myrt variants and a 1/48 He 177.
Having said THAT the Tamiya 1/48 109G-6 is a real beauty....
Or the P2V Neptune and P-3 Orion, for that matter... the Hasegawa kits date back to the Ford administration.
I would place money that the AMK kit is exactly why this was released... It's not like Tamiya wait for the chance to hurt the opposition- or anything.gingersdad wrote: I’ll bet AMK is just thrilled to see this kit come out.......
