Good morning everybody... I started this build quite a while back now. I was given an AZ Martin-Baker MB.5 Sea-Baker kit.

Two more lockdown builds complete, an RAF FGR.2 from 228 OCU at RAF Leuchars and an F-4J (UK) from 74 Sqn at RAF Wattisham, both from the late 1980s.

So here is a shot of the box and the contents and a close up of the decal sheet.
