So I was in Hobby Lobby and say this a week+ ago, and picked it up using the 40% off coupon. Going to roll with it as I have some 1/72 MK'82's with daisy-cutter fuses to hang under the wings. plus some rocket pods (of course!)

I like how proud they are of their rivets . Can't remember any rivets or screw heads showing on those birds... :pinch:

I got two of those things in the same box. Some extras if you want it. I'm not going to build it.
I told you photobucket sucks...

OK So I had a ton of great photos....then the old 'puter went belly up like a goldfish! I decide when I started to get the lirrle resin cockpit for this - man that has been TOUGH! The detail n the seats is great, but all the other items are hard to work with and the resin required TONS of sanding to fit! Here it is, I have been able to fit it and even remembered the weight for the nose....does not look like much/I know it needs touch up work, but am plugging along!

The resin I got is too small, at least you can sand this down. Looks good. :popcorn

Looking good. It is a shame that the resin required so much sanding to fit, but you made it look well worth the effort.
