Due to its colour scheme, the 352nd Fighter group quickly became known as the ‘Blue-nosed B******s of Bodney’, whose markings are well-represented here. The model depicts ‘Snoots Sniper’ of the group’s 352nd Fighter Squadron, and with its very fine panel lines, and moving flaps and rudder, this is one of the best 1/72 World War Two fighters on the market. Details include a ‘Malcolm’ hood for improved visibility, radio mast and spinning prop which has tiny manufacturer markings. Two styles of wing fuel tanks are provided, along with the option of lowered undercarriage, or raised for display stand mounting. www.geminijets.com
