  1. Congrats, Matt. Well deserved !

  2. Well done, Matty, looking forward to seeing the finished model.

  3. Maybe it was just me, but be careful with that Academy build. I found the fit and engineering to be somewhat less than spectacular. And it's probably a good thing you're doin' it "clean", 'cause I had a helluva time gettin' the gear to fit properly. IMO, it's not the "Phantom to end all Phantoms" that the pre-release hype led one to believe. Again, just my .02 - you may find no problems at all. Good luck and congrats.

  4. Congrats! I am currently building one of these great kits, and so far having a blast enjoy!

  5. Matt,
    As always, I eagerly await your next masterpiece. A very hearty congratulations.

  6. Glad to see it has arrived. The in-flight presentation can be mighty impressive!

  7. Well done Matt, as above, I await the pics from this build, you were worthy winner and it raised the bar again,
    The Phanyom is a favourite of mine.
