A great, fun to build kit. For me, some challenges in painting techniques; however, not quite yet mastered, but reasonable enough to submit (almost didn't).

I am presenting both build options; closed and open engine covers. Not sure if this is allowed? Or, just call them some 'extra' photos.

And all the futzing I did with the cockpit detail, only to not be able to capture in finished model.

Turned out nice. I'm glad you submitted it - not sure why you wouldn't.
Well....when I upgraded to Advanced from Intermediate, I self raised my performance bar. I felt that I just barely met Intermediate performance let alone Advanced on this build. But I was classified already,

Soooo..... self flagellation.

Taking this much too seriously Ralph. The point is to have fun.

Not sure why you don't like it Ralph, looks very sharp

I too went up a notch to challenge myself. I still consider myself Intermediate but Advanced looks good on the resume.
