Are you SURE about the canopy being from a Futura? I actually have one and it's nothing like the TX204 - the Futura ended up as the 1960's Batmobile and the windscreen on that was very distinctive and nothing like that of the TX204

Sorry not the Futura, but it is from a 1/25th Monogram car kit that's very similar in name..
The kit was a concept car and it has only be re-released one (and therefore very expensive) a Car modelling friend of mine has one. But won't let me have it or take a moulding (it's still attached to the clear sprue and therefore if damaged will reduce the kits value . But he is going to bring it to a club night so I can photograph and take measurements.

Basic shape P38 and a bit of crashforming job done

This actual model is being built for a certain Group Editor of a well known sci-fi publication. So therefore is going to be in Trapped configuration.
But your right Forest Fire type would be very very cool!

I've just printed out Mike HD grabs and the engines are definitely Lindberg (the exhaust nozzles are unmistakable).

Off to the RC shop tomorrow for wing spar material.
