    A new series of 'normal' kits from 'Forces of valor', a company known for already assembled models, until now...
    Theirs first issues aren't so good, too much 'toy-like' details but... hope they will do better in the future.

    Scratchbuild internal, some work on engine, thermo-formed canopy and a little display... decals from aftermarket, for an Israel fighter in the mid 50'.

    Nicely done, and I see what you mean about the 'toy like' appearance.

    Looks good. Canopy seems a bit oversized too.

    She looks great, I picked up a Forces of Valor spit for 3 bucks, I riped the wraping paper before reading the reviews on these kits :( I kinda understand why it was 3 bucks now :( lol

    Good work for "toy" kit. You really made it stand out.
