    I went to the hobby store today on a whim, figured there would be nothing new and I found this. Here is a basicly stock build of the kit, just some minor damage added and some weathering. I will do more weathering later. This was built in about an hour. The figures need some work but overall its a sweet kit!

    Enjoy, and thanks for looking.

    Yes I did, thank yo so much. We just recently got internet back at home, my phone was not working very well on the RPF site. I need to send out some "Rockford" goodies to you, I just have not found the perfect thing as of yet. Thanks again for sending the base. I was able to get a mold of it so I can resume the deathstar hangar project (as soon as I can afford more resin that is).

    Was it pre-painted like that or did you paint the whole thing yourself?

    I think it's an EasyKit, so it comes prepainted. Doesn't look too shabby :)

    It is prepainted and it's not bad. I repainted the side grills with black first then silver. Other than that I just added weathering.

    Not bad so far! With a corrected cockpit, new figures, a bit more detailed engine and completely new paintjob this thing must be awesome!

    That looks like a nice size to display. Does anyone know if there are any exisiting figures that could be swapped out for the stock figures ?

    It was listed in FSM magazine this past month, they listed it as 1/14

    MAN I am sick of these random scales. It's like they don't even care. Jerks.

    I ordered one last week, but as I look around at all the stuff I have unbuilt now, I'm thinking it was silly to take on another project.

    It's a neat little kit, but I would really want to touch this thing up and add real wiring to the exposed engine, etc., and I just don't have time to do all that I'd want.

    If anyone wants mine, they can have it for my price of $22 plus shipping.

    I hear you! I was going to jump all over this one, but decided to pass on it. If anything I might just build a studio scale version.

    Looks great. But since the XP-38 came out they just aren't in demand.
