First Look: Trumpeter’s Upcoming 1/48 Sea Vixen FAW.2

Trumpeter has released a CAD image of their upcoming new tool de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.2 model kit in 1/48 scale.

The FAW.2 performed its maiden flight in 1962 and entered service with the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm in 1964. It was an improvement over the previous FAW.1 and featured upgraded armament capabilities, an enlarged tail boom for added fuel and additional electronic countermeasures equipment.

Details on the kit are scarce, although it has been suggested that it could be released as early as January 2018.
