My second entry, (may be a third). I'm doing this because my wife really likes the markings.This article provides a lot of insight into "Angie" and show where a lot of people and Hasegawa got it wrong. L3-O

The innards. There are more but they are rattling about the box. I bought it off eBay and this is how it is and really hoping nothing is missing....

Deecals. Note that I tried to see how my paint stood up to the yellow of the decals as one has to paint the front of the cowling. Pretty gosh darned close on the left

It starts. Cockpit innards removed and ready for paint. These will be put aside so I can do the same on the other build and spritz, spritz at the same time

Colourful scheme. Hope all the parts are there for ya.
Little heart attack moment. The throttle quadrant wasn't attached to the sprue and I went through the box twice. It was tucked in the flap in the corner of the box
