1/144 Bell P-63A/C Kingcobra (Set of 2) - Dora Wings

1/144 Bell P-63A/C Kingcobra (Set of 2) - Dora Wings
he Bell P-63 Kingcobra is an American fighter aircraft developed by Bell Aircraft in World War II from the Bell P-39 Airacobra in an attempt to correct that aircraft's deficiencies. Although the P-63 was not accepted for combat use by the United States Army Air Forces, it was adopted by the Soviet Air Force.[2]

The Soviets developed successful group aerial fighting tactics for the Bell fighters and scored a surprising number of aerial victories over a variety of German aircraft. Low ceilings, short missions, good radios, a sealed and warm cockpit and ruggedness contributed to their effectiveness. To pilots who had once flown the tricky Polikarpov I-16, the aerodynamic quirks of the mid-engined aircraft were unimportant. In the Far East, P-63 and P-39 aircraft were used in the Soviet invasion of Manchukuo and northern Korea. In the Pacific theatre, the Kingcobras flew escort, close air support and ground attack missions. The Soviet P-63s achieved their first air victory on 15 August 1945, when Lejtenant I. F. Miroshnichenko from 17th IAP/190 IAD, shot down a Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa IJAAS fighter off the coast of North Korea.[13]

1/144 bf-109 (A,B or Cs?) Arsenal Model Group (AMG)

AMG are proposing a new bf-109 release, we first heard of these guys from the Ukraine was way back in February 2017 with a series of 1/144 releases I don't think actually showed up??

Here they are again with a planned bf-109 issue with an interesting sprue layout which seems to indicate it could be a "2-in-1" or multiple types (A,B or Cs?) could be built out the box?
