No kidding!? The 'Firebar' and 'Flashlight' are two of the few Cold War PVO and VVS subjects I would like to have. In 1/48, this will be one big bird! In 1966 one crashed into a lake in Berlin and the British pulled off a coup by recovering it and the then-sophisticated Skipscan radar. There was a frightening and yet amusing confrontation between a British officer and Russian General about the recovery.

I wonder why it looks as though Gerry Anderson had a hand in the design?

If I'm not mistaken, Bobcat is the renamed Xuntong Models. The folks that did the TU-2.

I thought the style of the box lid looked familiar Bryan.
