Freightdog Models has provided an update on their new tool model kit of the Supermarine Type 327 British twin-engine fighter.
”A little bit of progress on the Type 327 Shrew kit, partially built up example by Jen Wright that will hopefully be finished and on display at Cosford this weekend when the kit goes on sale. Pre-orders are welcome, I will only have a few with me. Retail price at the show will be £35.00, kit will be on the website next week.”
The Type 327 was a cannon-equipped concept aircraft designed to replace the Spitfire and Hurricane. However, it never entered production, in part because it was believed that other machines, such as the Westland Whirlwind, would likely enter service first.
The 1/72 resin kit will reportedly include “what if” markings for a prototype along with suitable roundels for fighter or photo reconnaissance versions, for which optional parts will also be included.
