How does this kit fare mate? Mirage kits are very cheap at my end and I've steered clear based on the you get what you pay for mantra.

well I have started this kit and it is a dog at times , you have too remove a major piece of plastic on both side of the hull to get the top plates on , I used a dremmel saw which wasn't too bad but the filler is required after thank goodness its a wreck im building
