English Electric Lightning F.2A - Airfix -

Hi guys,
This is my Lightning F2A, from Airfix, 1/72 scale.
The engraving is nice and the plastic very soft (therefore, very easy to craft). Unfortunately, the fittings are average low, and the cockpit, for example, is very difficult to fit in the fuselage. Eventually, this kit is more difficult to build than I' thought it would be.
The aluminum paint was done, using Vallejo Metal Color.
Thanks for looking.
Bye
Didier
