Fireflash from Thunderbirds episode 1 "Trapped in the Sky". Overall a very good build from Aoshima but the decals are not quite right. They are a little larger than necessary. They provide a second set with additional elevator car names, as well as the originals, which have individual letters rather than a run.  These are useful as they allow for additional lettering for the “AT2000” under the wings.

There were also decals for the white stripes, but these have been painted on this model.

Just seen this. Fantastic model! Really well done.  I love the Fireflash (although given it's safety record on Thunderbirds, I wouldn't have wanted to fly in one!). Is it just me, or would it look good in BOAC markings?
