Hopefully they do the series of P-80 subtypes, an accurate modern tooling would be great.

I want one, no I want two at a min. I'm with Paul as hoping that they do several sub types.

And I'm sure that the AM boys will be making all sorts of goodies.

According to someone who has a connection with this release, no plans on doing a Canadair version. Little will have to be done to make the changes though. You didn't think building a Canadian version was going to be that easy did you?

Does the fuselage breakdown allow for the possibility of a future F-80 version?
