Very nice Mark.  I can attest that this is by no means a “shake & bake” kit along the lines of a Tamiya or Eduard brand.  The results of your efforts are evident and I applaud you!!!!! :clap2:

 

Congratulations!!!!!

She’s a triumph, Mark, and encouraging for my proposed builds of this kit. Those panel lines look a bit deep and wide, though :(.
