Calling this one done. This one was a lot of fun and the first Aircraft that I’ve mixed and matched with another brand and added a Antenna. Thanks for all who followed this build and the Complements. Enjoy the pics. 8A9A216F-4B41-4098-9417-2FB5FBB99A00.jpeg9DF6E225-E436-41D5-8CC0-08FCC98A89BF.jpeg346CFE6E-3E2F-40D3-A0A6-19B8B4A9BB7C.jpegF1862B92-A1E0-488C-B76E-A60179EEEDFE.jpegE48A3160-C0D8-473C-913F-AB99CAA3FF68.jpeg

That's really rather good (he says with typical British understatement)!!! It also looks bigger than 1/72. I thought it was 1/48 given the finish!!

Great work.

ATB.

Rick. Thanks for the nice complement and you need to try a Wingy. I would like to see that.

Geoff. I’m glad you like it thanks for stopping by

Allen. Thank you my friend I really enjoy taking pics outside even though it might show my mistakes.

Andrew. Glad you dropped in and took a peak at it and I can hear that British voice too lol. This is one does look bigger after you said that I took a closer look at it. I like Academy the best when it comes to building a good detailed and going together but this one came up short in the Office Area and fire wall but it was easy to fix. Thanks
