Extras : Look IP, possibly decals, Wolf Pack Wing Fold set (damn you, Don!)

This was a fun build. The Eduard kit is a lovely kit with only a few minor things to clean up (fuse seams, a tad of flash, those kind of things). The Wolf Pack Wing Fold set was VERY nice even with the challenges with less than stellar instructions. I enjoyed the decals and really enjoyed doing a try color Navy bird. Figuring out how the kit gear worked into the wing fold set was a puzzle that required some trial fitting and checking against the only picture I could find of the gear with the wing folded and even that picture was weak at best. So, some educated guess work was done for the gear mounting. Can I recommend the Eduard kit? YES! The Wolf Pack wing fold set? YES!

That is so nice. The wingfold kit just adds a new look and feel. That's a nested Eagle.
