  5. Welcome to Imodeler. You will find this is a wonderful website for model building.

    This looks like a good start for a great kit build.

    It also would be a great addition to the 100 Years of the RAF group build should you choose to join.
    Everyone is invited and we would really like to see you start a new build journal if time permits.

    I like what I'm seeing !

  6. Proof that if you get it right, it doesn't matter if it's been around for 20 years (which it has, coming out the first time in 1998).

  7. Malcolm, you said: "You can never have enough lightnings?"
    I add: Of ANY era!

    You are absolutely right!
