Sword Models are planning not one but two new 1/72 kits based on the P/F-80 Shooting Star.
Sword is to release the photo reconnaissance version of the Shooting Star, the RF-80A. It comes in the markings of six aircraft that flew in Korea.
-SW72105 - RF-80A over Korea 1/72

The second release is the P-80A/B the designation before pursuit aircraft were redesignated fighters. There are five marking options with this kit.
-SW72106 P-80A/B 1/72

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here on Aeroscale.

Neat! I'm assuming the Sword kits are way better than my old Airfix F-80C.

Is 1/72 going to be it for Sword? I hope they move forward and release at the very least some new 1/48 kit's.

This is a re-issue. Sword did a line up of P/F-80 A/B/C back in 2010. And has the Airfix F-80 been in release since the turn if the 21st Century?
