    Looking like a short run kit. Some of patience and working required but there may be a nice final effect.

    looks very challenging but I reckon you could knock this into shape Andy. Is the fuselage shape and wings the right shape and detail. if so, I reckon it would be okay.

    It should shape up OK are some careful work. I just hope I can pull it off, I've never built one of these limited run kits before. The vac formed canopy is what worries me the most..

    Interesting Andy and I like that they give you two canopies. That increases the odds of doing it right the first time. I've done one and patience, lots of patience is a virtue. It looks like the edge of the canopy is pretty well define so, using a new blade, lightly score around the edges. I packed mine with Silly Putty to avoid crushing the canopy with all the handling
