    Here is a model that I completed earlier this year. This was my first kit back from a 20+ year absence from the hobby. I used a few aftermarket items on this: Montex canopy and wheel masks, Aber brass gun barrels,PE seat belts. Also testing the image attachment feature.

    Thanks for the kind words! It took me over a year to finish this model. After getting the kit and starting on it, it got shelved almost immediately as I got into a new hobby: painting fishing lures. That took over my workshop for a while. Once that slowed down, I pulled out the lonely model box on the bookshelf and started on it again. I made lots of mistakes on this as I was learning new techniques (preshading, PE parts, aftermarket canopy masks, etc.) and re-familiarizing myself with the basics of plastic modeling.

    What ever mistakes you made seem to have resulted in a superb model. Well done.

    Thanks but I failed to document the build process. I took a few pictures of some things like the hollowed out exhausts and the brake lines on the landing gear to share on Facebook but I wasn't participating on any modeling forums at the time. Jump forward to now... I am now in the process of contributing my THIRD model in the current Group Build here!
