Wonderful work! I love it. I have this kit in the stash, how did you find the construction and fit? 

 

I cant wait to see more of your builds! :) 

 

Thanks Sophie

Fit and construction is not bad though it is a short run kit. Tricky area is installation of the wing part to the fusealge.

Good luck in your build.

Excellent stuff and I too have one in the stash with the Barracuda set, how did you find the fit of the new nose?

 

Mike

Thanks Mike

Barracuda s nose fit is very good. Just a little triming and sanding. It works excellent.

Good luck in your tempest build
