Thanks Monica, but excuse my ignorance, what is 'Green Stuff, I don't know if we have that here in the UK?

I'm looking at for one of those, but the prices vary so much already.
And I've just been to Banbury in Oxfordshire where Trinders model shop has been as long as I've known and it's shut and gone!! The only model shop in a 40+ mile radius! So the internet now is my only option!

Yes, they were closing down when I went there a few weeks ago, and had very little stock. Where do you live? There's Joto Hobbies in Rugby, and The Model Shop in Northampton.

That looks like a very nice kit you have yourself there John. Eill be interested to see what you think of it as your start your build.
Well, I looked at Phil Flory's review on YT, and he was pretty scathing of the one he had - which was early release and apparently pitched at £50+ - So I got it all out of the bags, and there are some proper nasty eject pin marks and stress marks present. All in all though, the detail is nice and I will build it OOB, so I'll just do what I can with it! At least its a Voodoo with recessed panel lines!

This looks pretty well thought out, and beautifully presented.

Thanks Pete. I'm in Buckingham, so both Rugby and Northampton are not that far away, thanks for that.
