What a beautiful aircraft ... man I hope I find a possibility to raise some money in the near future.

The kit looks good too ... woohoo (sorry just became aware of the excessive use of "oo" in my short sentence )

As always very good review .. have you dropped the percentage quotation (not that it makes the review better or worse, just curious)

all the best

Hi Steffen

Thanks for spotting that - I simply forgot. It is a neat kit - but sitting it side by side with the original version shows that really wasn't bad either, and I wish the designers had included the nice etched instrument panel etc. again. I can't wait to have a crack at some Spanish Civil War camo!

All the best
