    Looking forward to this one Keith - I haven't seen the Airfix MkIX yet, so I'll be following your build. take it steady and don't rush this time! You shouldn't have problems with alignment on this one, compared to the ICM kit. I've got that one, and although it's a superb kit, I can see it'll need careful handling.

    Hi guy's

    Update on the kit :). it's a very basic kit no engine, you do get 2 types of top wings which you can see in the pics. Also painted some of the parts.

    Nice work so far Keith. The instrument panel looks good - I think maybe you're taking your time on this one, and it shows.
