just when I thought I could successfully ignore the GWH P-61 then they go and do something silly like issue it with the markings Id want

Looks like there are no drop tanks included. Odd.. They include tanks on the release that shouldn't have them, but neglect them on ones that do. The slots on the wing are there to mount them. And I doubt the canopies fit any better on this release.
