Hi folks I acquired this kit yesterday from under one of the tables at Stoke-On Trent model show. Decent little kit for £12 but comes with raised panel lines and two sets of marking options. I might rescribe and sand the raised panel lines or might leave them as they are undecided at the moment. Thanks for looking in and any comments/advice/ help that you leave cheers John. More later........................o_O IMG_8463.JPG IMG_8447.JPG IMG_8449.JPG IMG_8448.JPG IMG_8454.JPG IMG_8452.JPG IMG_8450.JPG IMG_8451.JPG IMG_8453.JPG IMG_8456.JPG IMG_8467.JPG IMG_8466.JPG IMG_8465.JPG IMG_8464.JPG

For some reason I've always thought this is a beautiful aircraft, ever since I made the Matchbox one as a kid So I'm interested in watching you build this one John.

Looking at the sprues, I like how the upper fuselage & wings are one piece. That saves faffing with filling & sanding ;)

Hi folks just blew the dust of this after eventually finishing my mustang. Went with the rescribe and sanding option. Of to spray all the interior panels and dials etc. Pics to follow. Cheers John
