Had the added impetus to finish as the first show in 2 years (in England) is on this weekend at Thornbury and I'm displaying on the Cold War SIG stand, hope to see some of you there!

That's very nice indeed and also one of my favourite Gulf War squadrons.

Just tip if it's not too late - the starboard tail light should also be red. 😉

 

Thankyou for the heads up! Serves me right for trusting Hasegawa's colour call-outs instead of double checking photos. I'll be rectifying that first thing on Monday! (The kit is currently packed ready for the weekend - let's see how many others spot it 😉)

Thankyou everyone for the positive comments 😁 it's certainly a fiddly and finicky kit but one that rewards careful construction, good job really as there are a few more to do hiding in the stash!
