of $39.36 - full MSRP in the US will be $35. Looks to be a relatively straight-forward kit.

Is this a Bundesnachrichtendienst(German Secret service)agent from Bavaria?

if you want to take it that way.

Shame they didn't get the aft decking (under the canopy) right, after having it pointed out, oh, a couple of years ago on Britmodeller. [Edit: actually, a year and a half. Thread here for those interested:
]http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/inde ... opic=55621]
Looks like maybe they tried by adding the bit that the headrest/armour attaches to, but still missed. And this after doing pretty much the same thing on the Sea Fury.

Having said that, I'll go out on a limb and predict that this will at least be better than the Silver Cloud kit! Furthermore, it is one I'll have to get, though perhaps I'll be able to hold out until Squadron has them at a good discount. Of course if Brett diverts one my way and asks for a review I'll be happy to oblige! Bring on the Seafang...

I know, it's pure whiffery, but how often do you see a Dutch what-if?

I hope they've done a decent job with the very subtle and frequently difficult to capture shape of the cowling, spinner and prop blades... if they get it close (nevermind "right"), maybe we can have hope for a better Spit XIV family to follow at some point.

Note how I was very careful in my word selection there...

Hi Bob,

Would you happen to have a link to a walkaround showing that area, or a pic to satisfy my curiosity?

TIA
