Wing and tail profiles check out and there appears to be a circular depression behind the cockpit area in the upper half of the mould. Am I right, Teddybeer? The delta wing is very Lippisch-like, having no rounded ends. I first thought Convair something, possible the XF-92, but it doesn't match what's in the mould.


Delta chap looks like a Fairey FD2 to me.

I'm sorry F_IV : the Vultee Vengeance is an old reference of Mr. Chaubet, always available.
See here : https://144airbattle.blogspot.com/2014/06/1144-vultee-35-vengeance-by-chaubet.html
and here : https://144airbattle.blogspot.com/2012/11/1144-vultee-31-vengeance-raaf.html

And for the other models present on the mold. Do you want some clues ?
Yes, I'm cruel... :evil: :evil: :evil: :P :D :lol:

Supermarine Attacker and a Grumman Bearcat are two others?

Agree with the Attacker, Peter, but I can't see any Bearcat. However, top right hand casting looks like a Westland Wyvern. Corresponds to 12 o'clock on the mould. Certainly would explain the small vertical stabilisers on the tailplane.

Do I win another prize, TB? ;)

PS. Re: the Vengeance, I was unaware that a survivor from WW2 was on display at Camden in South West Sydney. Unfortunately, Camden is not open to the public and I've no idea whether they still have EZ999 anyway. More's the pity.

Yes and No. It's ok for the Westland Wyvern. But it is not an Attacker.

And the solution is :

But still bravo for the sagacity of some. :geek:

For those interested in the Vigna di Valle Museum...

If you visit my city, Rome, keep in mind that the museum isn't easy to reach with public transportation.
You might get a coach to Bracciano and ask the driver for the right stop on the Braccianese road, but then you'd still have 2-3 km ( it's a country road going downhill to the lake, so it can be a pleasing walk if it is a fine day).
Best way would be renting a car and drive there (less than an hour from Rome) Entrance to the museum is free; there's a small shop and last time I was there they had two or three die-cast S-55 in 1/144 on sale.
The museum's. main problem is lack of space: they'd need a large hangar for their G222, Hu-16 and other planes, (the WWII hangar is quite cramped, I don't know where they'll put the Re-2001 if and when they finish restoring and rebuilding it).

Ah, a P.111, a Hawker Sea Hawk and a Tunnan. We can now sleep soundly at night, safe in the knowledge that all six aircraft have been revealed! ;)

Incidentally, is it just me or do those moulds look like shields for some ancient Pagan army?
