I want to thank Louis Gardner for starting this group build and inviting me to come along with my cat entry. Since I was a little late to the party I picked a kit that I thought would be simple and fast. So presented for your view today is the [...]
Hello, This is the testors Tornado, But it really is Italeri kit. Not to bad of a kit with some work
