I saw this posted on The Motor Pool. From the three images, it looks rather nice and in 1:48th scale! I bet it's a heavy one too.

Looks nice from the small picture.   A die cast is pretty heavy for that somewhat narrow stand if my FM P-38 is any gage. That price point probably pushed it beyond many collectors willingness to pay. Probably why HM once said they would not be likely to get into twin engine WWII subjects. Cost , Packaging etc.

I already have the FM version of this release. But I might be interested in a couple of ETO or MTO schemes in 1:48.

Brave tooling!!

Nice looking model. Big, yes, I will bet....




I had scads of 1/48 stuff when I was a kid. I still build it now and then, but collecting is limited to 1/72 at the moment!
