I purchased this kit on EBay. An "older" kit that was challenging to build. Cockpit canopy did not fit, so I ended up shortening the rear section. My first attempt including the pilot and crew members. A couple of the smaller decals had worn away in box and two of the larger decals on the wings degenerated a little when I sprayed final clear coat ?. I had to make my own masking for canopy, wow that was difficult! I will likely purchase pre-made canopy masks in the future. Overall I enjoyed making this kit.

Well done, even for an old kit. Those are some of the best challenges in this craft. The decals look like they were painted on, great job. The display; was that a purchased item and simply mounted to foam core panel?

Thanks everyone. I purchased the display base, it came already mounted to the foam core panel.
