Bad News for anyone waiting for this kit. Recent kit preview on Hyperscale web site is very negative. So bad that Squadron has posted an offer to cancel/refund advance orders on the kit. Check it out at under "whats new" section.Sad [:(]

Well, it looks like the screwed the pooch on this one. What I'm wondering is if this is closer to an FM-2 profile? I don't have a good reference for an FM-2 though. Just photos and they can fool you. Anyone know?

I hope they get the Corsair right!

Not even close to an FM-2 profile. I read the HyperScale post, pulled out my Tamiya 1/48 kit for eyeball comparison too, and it looks like absolute crap except as an aftermarket set for the Revell F4F.

The 1/32 Corsairs better be a whole lot more on the ball.

I suspect the after market guys are salivating over the trumpeter kits. Smile [:)]
