I will be posting an article by Steve Brooks (Salt6) shortly on his radical prop-to-jet Shinden conversion. It's somewhat fictional but looks great. Check it out below.

Thanks Steve!

Well done conversion Steve!!
I've seen a couple of those kits built and always wondered what kinds of What-ifs you could do with it. By the way, how is the cockpit detail on the kit?

It's an easy conversion and was proposed by the Japanese. They just ran out of time to build the engines.

The cockpit is really sparse but is really not easy to see.
