Top work  :thumb:  All the way from a promising start to an excellent finish, this has been a first class build 8-)

Congratulations :Clapping:

If I turn one out half as good as that I'll be thrilled to bits.

Mark :D

Wow.  That really turned out good.  Hard to believe it's such a little model.  Really impressive. :thumb:

Great job!

Not sure if any of you guys would know where it goes/or if it is not relevant for this variant but I can't seem to find a reference in the instructions to part A5? Apologies for if it is there and I've just missed it but its puzzling me as it looks to be the same shape as the inside of the canopy framing?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi mate,its the armoured headrest that were sometimes taken off(I think).I think thats the only weak point of this kit,I think the part being photoetched metal would look better.That said I've built 2 with 3 more to go!!
