  1. Congratulations Bernard, an excellent result! I have the Eduard kit waiting to be built and you've just proved that it's worth building. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Nice model, nice pictures, too!

  3. Excellent finish and green with envy. The kit is on my wish list.

    Bernard what was the kit like to build? I'm reading that the exhausts are too complicated ( perhaps to accommodate earlier marks being developed by Eduard) ? How did the resin cockpit fit? Some folks have filed a bump located on the top of a wheel well to help ease matters or they have filed down some plastic.

    Over all a smart build and its making for a easy sale for this modeler.

    • The kit is an excellent build, with the exception of the resin cockpit, which needs it's floor thinned for the wings to fit - even after removing the bump on the inside of the lower wing, I used the resin exhaust and had no problems fitting them.

  4. Love it. Love spits.

  5. Thanks for all the positive comments 🙂
