Konrad Limmer Will following this build too!
05. August at 09:17:55
Tim van Dooremalen Love the spit and got this one in my stash as well. Will be following closely :)
05. August at 11:51:27
Urban Gardini Now this is a project worthy to follow closely!

Bill Gilman I've built two instrument panels, one from the Eduard pre-painted photoetch, and the other from the kit parts and some decals from Barracuda. I posted a photo that compares them both - what would you choose? I have to admit that I strongly prefer the kit parts. I use Eduard pre-painted panels often in 1:72 (although I think those from Yahu are nicer) but they just don't look good enough for this scale. Or maybe I got a bad sample...
08. August at 02:08:51
Bill Spargo I prefer the kit part, there is a lot more highlighted detail over the whole panel.Looks great.
08. August at 05:20:30
Urban Gardini Go with the kit parts! Eduard's traditional PE isn't suited for this scale at all. They've come up with a new line that they call Löök that should be good but I've not seen those in the flesh but the photos look good at least.

Jan Raska Looking great!

Bill Gilman Thanks mates! Now I'm off to find kits of the XP-54 and XP-55. That should make a nice trio.
05. August at 15:47:16
Bart Goesaert That xp-55 will cost more work then this one
05. August at 16:42:17
Bernhard Schrock As usual great choice of a seldom seen type, excellent research, build, painting and at last photography. Bill: thx for sharing.
05. August at 17:04:27
Michael Gosse I like it, too. Looks to me like a German What if project; always great to see those unusual topics. And a very good work in this scale especially!

Jean Pierre CULIS-FERY Very nice building of a very Strange plane.

Duncan Cook A nice kit, but the Wing fuselage back needs some putty, because it's to low.
The Wingpart is not high enough.
08. June 2013 at 21:48:39
Bill Gilman Thanks - it needs some help with the canopy, too, and it looks like the forward fuselage is a bit too wide. But I have grinders and sanding paper! I'm going to make several vacuform copies of the Hasegawa Sea Harrier canopy, and see what needs to be done to make it fit. I had to buy the kit, it was only $5.00. The decal sheet is worth that!
08. June 2013 at 22:18:50
Duncan Cook I've heard rumors that the decals are too big.
But you cna't do anything wrong for aprox. 3 Euros.
I've paid 13 for mine.

Peter Popovič I got mine for 10€.
