    As you can see its a fairly basic kit it needs detail in the wheel wells but overall the shape looks ok .BB

    Looking very nice though.:D

    However the thread should have been merged with the What's on The Workbench one. Or put into Start to Finish sub-section.

    It's OK.
    Was it difficult to fit the aftermarket cockpit conopy?

    Looks like a scaled-up version of their 1/48th scale kit, basic, but quite nicely moulded, with a lot of potential for scratch-built detailing. Nice! Thanks BB.
