Hobbycraft 1/48 P-59 Airacomet
Hobbycraft has produced the only 1/48 kit of this historic aircraft, that I’m aware of. It’s a nice, simple, basic kit, which I found a little pricey, considering what was included, which was not much. Still, I felt the P-59 was a “must have” that filled an important gap in my 1/48 collection. I did an OOB build. I don’t know if it was me, the simplicity of the kit, the non-combat history, but I found it hard to maintain my enthusiasim, and just wanted it done, and, I’m afraid it shows. I’m happier with it now, on the shelf. Considering it’s time period, it would easily lend itself to a few interesting “what if’s”. If the price was right, I’d be tempted.
