1/144 USAAC Super Bombers by Anigrand!

1/144 USAAC Super Bombers by Anigrand! ===============================

Another batch of items that are going to break the bank?
For me not as exciting as some, but those XB-31 Bonus kits look tasty!!
Apart from the Moonbat, and maybe a lightning derived airframe, i have no idea what any of these bonus aircraft are.... any help would be appreciated!
I remember the day when we looked forward to the next kit issue, now they are coming along in groups of three!!

I am already looking forward to the next set!

Middle bonus aircraft for the XB-31 is the Vultee XP-54 "Swoose Goose". The one to its right in the same set as the XB-31 is the Curtis Wright XP-55 Ascender.

I think that the one at the start of the row is the Northrop XP-56 Black Bullet.

Afraid those are the only ones I can identify.

The XB-30 extra kits are the Curtiss XP-62 and Convair XP-81 (both ID'd by Doctor Yo) and the Fisher XP-75 Eagle.
I Don't think the XP-58 is correct, the centre fuselage is a lot bigger on the Chain Lightning and it's outer wings were from the P-38 with a very different shape to the tips. I'm not certain but it may be the Hughes D2 fighter prototype (predecessor of the XF-11)
Hope that's of some help.
