Very nice review, Darren. We saw one of these on display at a the local Air Force museum and a former pilot talked to us about flying it. I have seen one flying from time to time as well but don't know who owns it. It is a kit I would like to pick up.

Jess I see a second offering is already listed so Civilian versions will likely turn up in time

I will definitely be looing out for this one, to go with the 1/48 Testors and 1/50 Heller kits I built a few years back!

Thanks for the heads-up Darren.

ICM really is coming hot at the moment, of what I heard from friends, they are great to build.
