of a reissue of a mediocre kit that is still readily available. I was hoping for an all new (and good) kit, but unfortunately its just a rebox. I would imagine the Revell reissue wont have any etch or resin included like the original either. Its no different than Tamiya putting an Italeri kit in their box which people always complain about.
My reply purely focussed on Lynn's reply which brought back some memories. My reply was not meant to belittle or brush aside the frustration you expressed about the fact that it is just a re-box of the Special Hobby kit. It would certainly have been much better not to say great if Revell would have issued a new and dimensionally more accurate kit. Would be nice if the gave the P-39 the same treatment as the Uhu which rumour has it, is excellent.

Anybody else think the windscreen is too sloped?

I got halfway through the kit: lengthening the fuselage was easier than it sounds, but I couldn't figure out how to change the angle of the windscreen without vacuforming a new one. I put it aside and started the 1/48 Hasegawa.
Is it just me, or is that Special Hobby windscreen just looking wrong?
