I'd be curious just what "identical scale" (on the box top) means -- a botched translation of "constant scale" perhaps ?

I never think of any kit as pkra; just a challenge
I think the only kit I have to fit this even closely is the original Airfix Gloster Gladiator

"pkra", like "krap" is an effort to avoid the forum naughty word filter.

Actually "krap" is really K-Rap, a variation on K-Pop, and little know to everyone here (so far) is that this will be a Korean music GB -- where's PurpleThistle ?

I suppose it could stand for plastic kits, really awful

Korean music GB? You mean, we have to listen to Korean music while we´re cutting and glueing along?
Once I listened to the music on the North Korean website, it made me thinking about going to the asylum :frown:
Noooo, that´s too much for me.

Right, since we seem to have enough bodies to make this feasible, when shall we do this?

January?

January is ok
But what about making this the Over-Christmas-into-New Year time build?
