Pavla has released a number of update sets for Academy''s 1/48th (ex Italeri boxing) U-2S spyplane kit.
Andy Brazier spys (sorry, my puns are getting worse) over these little gems.

So's your spelling If I spy on your spies I'd be spying

That I.P. looks better than the kit part but looks a little bit on the rough side, shame this wasn't around a couple of years ago when I built mine although I do have an earlier version waiting in the stash, just need to check pictures and see if it's usable it that.

As soon as I had typed it I knew it was wrong but forgot to change it .
The kits I.P is just basically a blank black bit of plastic compared to the Pavla I.P.
I have been looking around the flat wondering where I would display something with a foot long wingspan, the Better Half has suggested the bin. I did say the bin wasn't big enough for it .
My first thought when I got the update sets was your U-2 Lucky. If I get mine built we wont have to worry about filling the stand at shows .
