Hi Jermaine, thank you. Kit was OK overall but had some issues with fit around wing/fuselage joint. First time ever did an Eduard kit and very impressed with level of detail. Also first time working with photo-etch and it looks nice when you install it but some parts way too tiny. Canopy masks work great and decals are good too.
I display on shelf but take some pics while hanging on fine fishing line as it looks better, especially if it had a pilot, :)
