I have been plodding away on this over the last couple of days and must say it is a superb kit, a lot of the parts just snap together. Very few sink marks or flash is evident. The cockpit is very well thought out and all I have added is some cables to the back of the instrument panel.
The fuselage has ribbing all the way down and also has a hatch open so you can just about see the radio gear and other bits when fitted.
The business end of the model is very well thought out as you get a white metal front wheel bay so no worry's about this being a tail sitter.
As mentioned I am replacing the kit barrel with a very nice metal and brass item from master models, this is simplicity itself to fit, just cut off the kit barrel and drill a 1.5mm hole for the base of the barrel. As the barrel is broken down into four parts I can add the base and then add the rest of the barrel on final assembly. The muzzle is superb and will really enhance the model when finished.
