Resin cast conversion set (five parts) to 1/144 scale. Designed for use with any of the Minicraft family of C-97 or KC-97 kits. The C-97 AWI was a 1945 British proposal for an Airborne Warning and Interception platform utilising its large forward fuselage to locate a 7 foot antenna in the nose. To do this the cockpit was to be relocated on the top of the fuselage, with smaller antennae located above and below the fuselage. A paper project only, more information can be found on this facinating subject in The Air Staff and AEW by Chris Gibson, published by Blue Envoy Press. Decals not included, illustration by Adrian Mann.
