Stunning work!

I can see you put a lot of effort into this model.

(Second picture looks like a different model due to the garish blue color - suppose this picture was taken under another light source?)

Thanks Guys

second picture was on workbench not photo area. Way different light. Photo booth has much more accurate colors but workbench has accurate props😃😃

Very nice indeed. This is not an easy kit to build

Tidy F-5! I really like how your PRU blue turned out. Echoing ArmouredSprue above, did this kit offer any untoward difficulty in your opinion? Dragon kits look so great in the box but sometimes don't go together so well.

Very nice. That is a plane and a paint scheme that also has appealed to me for some time. Was the Dragon kit tricky to build (probably all P-38 are in a way tricky)?

Greetings Guys

Dragon kit had a few tricky areas but nothing catastrophic. The nose for the Photo section was a single clear section and required a bit of cutting and filling in the front. Basic modelling skills were required for model but isn't that the objective.B).

That's why I did buy RS Model's rendering of the F-5A instead;

however, on close inspection, that kit has some tricky areas as well...

it seems to me that the Dragon kit has finer surface detail in general.

Nice!  Colour scheme looks good on a Lightning.

That looks superb!

Having built a Dragon Lightning myself, I salute you for the great result - the fit of key parts isn't always the best, as I recall.

Brilliant job.
