    Yeah Andy but it's amazing what a little time can do with the less expensive models if they fit decent. Very nice Trey.:cool: :thumbright: You guys amaze me!

    Andy ,Aaron thanks. You're right not many parts at all and the canopy was waaaay thick

    I cut it up and used the center for the inner windscreen armor panel. I also had to scavenge an instrument panel left over from a build . I know its not true to the type but it was better than the flat plain panel that came with the kit

    I also added a floor and the red trim wheel along with the inner tanks that ran along the seat

    Nice job. I like taking an old kit and working it up into something.

    Very nice! I started that kit but some how never finished it so I know how very basic it is. How did you do the canopy? Make it or buy it aftermarket?
