    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.

    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
