    Why do I feel like I need a giant bowl of popcorn and a large beverage? This will be exciting to watch. Good start.

    Very nice detail on the seat and bulkhead just remember when you come to attaching the gun bay cover it hinges from the bottom not the top as shown in the instructions. Check out this restoration that was done in France it's full of reference photos He 162
