Hi John, looking good, but can I ask one thing. Why didn't you jump in on the Vietnam SIG build?

Just wondered.

Looking good so far. Will keep an eye on this one.

It'll be interesting to see how an Academy kit of this scale can look. I've only built their aircraft in 1/72, and they're excellent.

That looks very nice John, love the added details!

By the way, how do you add your images so they appear on the page rather than as thumbnails? I've often wondered!

Cheers

Patrick
