haven't decided which scheme for the camo,as I'll be waiting on whether a set of Korean AF decals gets here or not...

Paint more than likely Tamiya's own

Hi Bluebottle

Looks like a lovely kit that.

I notce that Tamiya seem to hae provided the Nene engine with the kit, as well as what looks like a trolley for it to go on. Is that right?

It's a bit of an obsession of mine (unhealthy of course...) but I like to know which aircraft kits come with complete engines included e.g the new Revell Lanc has a couple of Merlin engines included I believe. Also most 1/48 kits of the German WWII jets (and Rockets)

It's funny, but you quite often see Mig 15/17 engines, which were of course virtual copies of the Rolls Royce Nene that we sent the Soviets (free of charge...), but I haven't seen a kit of a British aircraft with that engine included. I don't think I have seen one made by any of the aftermarket companies either, for that matter.

Well good luck with the build
