I'll let you into a secret. For a long time I have wanted a one of these. I'm not entirely sure why - possibly because it is that rare thing, an Allied land-based dive bomber, but I suspect it must be more to do with the rather appealing name. After all, it can hardly be the appearance of the thing, looking as it does like something assembled in a scrapyard from bits of P-47 Thunderbolt, Ju-87 and Fairey Battle.
Let's agree that it has a 'purposeful' appearance. I was delighted to find this example in last year's acquisition. I believe it to be the old FROG kit as I don't think anyone else was fool enough to make a Vengeance.
Originally designed to meet a French requirement, it saw active service with RAF, RAAF and Indian AF.
The Far East colour scheme is striking - I think it would also look rather good in it's intended French colours.
