Opened the box only yesterday (Sunday 31st July), taped it together to check fit. If it's OK with the 'show runners' I can do proper start-up / date stamp pics, if not, that's fine there's plenty more kits in the stash.

Over to you.

Only extras will be the decals and the Eduard kit-specific Zoom set.

Thanks all.
Never built one of these before so that makes it even more fun... Wednesday is always a day-off for me so with luck I can get some cockpit 'stuff' done today.

For a change, I'm going back to enamel paints for this one.

More soon.

More to add: Rear bulkhead, throttle & fuel mix levers and of course the instrument panel not to mention everything in the rear gunners compartment. Definitely not a 'shake'n bake' project.
