Airfix may have been tapping into a newsreel/news paper image going around at the time. There's a shot of an English farmer watching a Lightning crash in his field , complete with pilot riding the seat.

New member here saying hello! Veb/KVZ/Plasticart always had truly awful box art.The An-12 box top was one of my personal favorites.The paratroopers look like gingerbread men. I bought this kit from Archer's Hobby World back in 1980.My brother and I made the mistake of opening the tube of paint included and the smell almost took us out!

Isn't that a type of rat unique to that desert? The feet may be a little bit large, but not by much for that particular species.

I think your right exhausted! I found this picture of a desert rat with large feet! I guess Roden had it right.
