    not knowing the new forum parts I am taking a chance that this may work.
    I got this from a small hobby store in Tulsa for a small pittance and was pretty chuffed that everything was still there in the opened box. I had built one of these before with pretty morbid results and this time I vowed to my self that I would really watch myself and apply some thought before I did anything permanent with the glue. For the most part it is OOB with all the paint being Vallejo. I dont think I did anything special with it to make stand out any more than what it is now. I weathered it with Vallejo pigments and used the atrocious kit decals where I mucked up one roundel which I had a replacement in my spares box.
    Anyway, see what you think.

    This was my first completion after about a year and a half absence from building. In that time I started one and either put it away or gave it to some one to finish as their own. maybe now I will complete more kits but at a slower pace and more accurately.
