The Fireball was the U.S. Navy's first jet aircraft. It had a piston engine in the nose and a turbine engine in the rear of the fuselage. Only 71 were built, but orders for over a thousand were cancelled on at the end of the war. FRs might make an interesting addition to a gaming scenario in which the Pacific War lasted another year.
This model is a re-scale of our 1/285 Ryan FR-1 Fireball, some parts have been modified to better fit the new scale.
