Hello everyone. This is my first post, since I just landed.
I usually only build on 1/72, but I wanted to try to give this kit a go.
At present there are brands that manufacture Spits with a higher level, but otherwise it would never have been b[...]
one for my bucket list...always wanted to build one of these...Al Vraciu...like cashew with a V

The old Arii kit but still come up nice. Rigging g done with the wire that came in the kit. I want to try using EZ Line when I can get some. Looks interesting. Hope you like all.
