This is a Model Alliance resin kit I built a few years ago.  I changed the prop to represent the second prototype and I used a spare one from a scrapped Shackleton I had, where the spinner just happens to match up very well with the XP-72's one.  The Alliance kit is of the first prototype which had a single four blade prop but didn't have decals, after a call to Hannants I was able to get some from CMR who do make a resin kit of the second prototype.

Great to see some interesting variations on a (common) theme :) Very nicely done.

Thanks Mike, the XP-72 is one of my all time favoirtes, if jets hadn't come along I think we would have seen a lot of these.
