I need to have a breake from my tomcat buld since that Revel kit is a nightmare to get the joints to work, gaps to fill in, ejector pins everywere, mismatch of surfaces, heavy handed pannel lines and thick unrealistic walls, so I took this little kit and in this project I will use AK interactive primers and paints, eduard zoon self-glue colored photo etched and bomb load from Hasegawa weapons set 1 , I will ignore the fact that this particular aircraft ony have 3 pylons and as Airfix did inclue the other 2 I will put all 5 pylons, fully load for low level strike! let´s see how it turns out.
