Nice Grant.
Me and my daughter built this kit and it was a pain.
Still it looked ok when done, oh that's right it's not finished. Might have to do something about that.

It's definitely a fiddly little thing. Compared to the Hurricane and Mustang it is a very small aircraft. I'm quite looking forward to lining all these 1/72 builds up to compare sizes. :)

Oh look, progress on the next build. I've never built a Lightning, but this is still a real nostalgia build because these Hasegawa kits were common builds in the 80s for me. I remember doing the 1/72 B-17 and the Kate. Very fine raised detail, great fit, overall nice package. I bought this one last year on Trademe. Whoever sold it to me had put an Airswaves PE set in the box which was a nice surprise. This will be overall aluminium with red trim "Pudgy."

Nice subject, I always liked the look of the Lightning.
I made this way back when I was young.
