Cool - another shot at the old kit.
Did you buy the kit without knowing the contents? - I've had some surprises when buying kits second hand - or are you like me, with a large stash and a poor memory? :D

Large stash. Usually I note what's actually in the box, not this time though :hithead:

Made a start.
Again we have extra bits left over from an MPM Defiant.

Work continues in much the same way as it did with the P.94.
However the replacement rear fuselage top shows clearly how narrow the kit is in that area.
