Has anyone seen or bought this 1/12 scale version?

1/. It isn't a Vb, since it has the twin radiators of the IX.
2/. It isn't a IX, since it has a 3-bladed prop, and early Mark exhausts.

Thanks for the heads-up.

So if the port wing radiator was omitted it would then look about right for a Vb?

Still more work needed; the cannon bulge is the wrong size, and in the wrong place; there shouldn't be a second "cannon" fairing on the leading edge; there shouldn't be tear-drop fairings over the wheel wells. That's all that I could see, clearly, in the few seconds available, but I suspect, if they've copied a "C" wing, that the inner .303" Browning's compartment will be in the wrong place, too. I couldn't see if there was a second bulge, for the cannon, on the underside, but there should be (and it wasn't a simple teardrop.)
