- First Name
I started this one about 18 months ago. Finally got it finished tonight. Its a typical limited run kit. Not easy to put together.For example, the fuselage bulkheads were all oversize and needed trimming So the fuselage halves would come together. But im happy with the finished model. Finished as an aircraft of 829 sqdn operating from HMS Victorious and carrying out strikes on the Tirpitz in 1944. The kit is very basic and disappointingly does not include any armament. For attacks on the Tirpitz they typically carried a 1,600lb armour piercing bomb under the fuselage. Its a shame Special Hobby didnt include one in the kit.
