Roden 1/72 North American AJ-1 Savage

 4 August 2022: I've added a post summarizing the configuration of the different AJ Savage canopies here (at this point, the kit has the No 1 canopy that was on a few early AJ-1s):

Totally unexpected, reportedly to be available this coming September:


I got a preview of the instructions and pictures of some of the tooling a month ago. It looks very good: lots of interior detail (and a Mk 4 bomb, around which the Savage was designed). One nit of confusion with the -2 configuration, easily remedied, is the nose landing gear door configuration (I had previously alluded to another one but incorrectly, as it turned out). While you're waiting, here is some reference material to peruse:

  1. I'm sure you're all over this, but I'll ask this anyway. Since you provided info for this kit, do you know if there is a -2 in the works? I want a -2P in the worst way. Thanks.
