My completed Shangri -La. I enjoyed this build which was mostly out of the box with the exception of the main landing gear wheels which are from Hussar. I also used the Lifelike Decals set for this aircraft.

  1. Very nice build - well done.

  2. Nice to see Shangri-La in its final look, don't see it done this way very often. Well in its final look it has a broken back but you know what I mean!
