As I will be taking part in the second part of this GB and it's an easy kit to find this is my second victim.
And it doesn't look too bad a kit a lot better than I am used to.
As usual it has those paints and glue so let's see what I can do.20190414_091132.jpg20190414_091423.jpg20190414_091443.jpg

Hi Peter
Watching with interest. Looks a decent kit. I think it is one of Airfix's newer kits - around 2010 maybe.

It is a nice little kit, my daughter bought me one as a joke Father’s Day present a few years ago. I just cut the header card off and binned it, then made the kit...it went together like a dream.....I think I did the black and white undersides....

Hi Peter
Looking good. One or two more thinned coats should do it without clogging up the detail.
