RAF Stuka, Airfix 1/48 was created by Mumbles
Not a "what if", but an Italian Stuka that was taken by the RAF in 1941. New tool Airfix B-1 kit, built as an R-2 using the B-2 spares in the box. A couple of minor mods were made to match pictures of the real aircraft, and some engine details added. Decals by LF. There are some sink marks and ejector pin marks in odd places, and a couple of missing instructions that need figuring out (like how the bomb cradle attaches when building the exposed engine option) but otherwise a really nice kit to build.

Meticulous work. I take it from your comment that it's either engine covers on or off, but not both?

Thank you! Yes it's an either or thing. The cowls aren't designed for the separation required, and are too thick to go over the engine anyway.
