Sorry about the photo! I built it when it first came out, strangely the cockpit was better in the kit, which had very good decals, not found in the 48 release. Closed up, with tinted windows, you can't see anything anyway. You gonna need filler around the wing area but the weapons bay and wheel bay areas are well detailed including a Red Beard nuke. The tanks are not in the kit. It's surprising that invested so much in tooling a prototype, it's as long as a !

  1. Very nice result, Mervyn!
    Must be huge!

  2. Yep, that is one big bird! Looks great!

  3. This is a very nice build, Mervyn @frank1957
