As a beginner, I have learnt many lessons with this, the main ones being:- Use cheaper kits until you get better at it! Make haste slowly. Manage modelling time better. The following are the main firsts for me: airbrushing Modern kits and materials, including PE, the last one was over 35 years ago! A group build. Joining a Forum. Likes: The camouflage effects. The aircraft the model is based on. Dislikes: The overall fit and finish. Poor modelling time management. It wouldn't be this good without the Forum, so constructive criticism welcome. You can't be harder on me than I am being! I will go back to it later to use gloss varnish on the canopy and a host of other improvements, but at least it will look good hanging from an 8 year old's ceiling! Cheers. Peter.
