Completed. Thoroughly enjoyed every step of this build. Tamiya engineering was the best I have witnessed yet, no confusion or ambiguity about fit. 100% Out of the box, only addition I would have made would be PE seatbelts. The decals looked cartoonish, so I left them off. Painting done with MRP range, all sprayed beautifully. Oil was was my own mix. The large decals were not too bad for Tamiya, although the smaller decals do stand out from the surface a bit.IMG_0785.JPG

Nice job Jack. A big old kite isn't it, imagine putting one of these down on a carrier.
