I will be using the new tool Airfix kit. I have only ever used Fujimi kits for my Skyhawk builds so this will be an interesting comparison... As stated above I will be building a VA-164 machine loaded heavily with all-sorts of ordnance.

I am camera less... so only took pics om my phone. Anyhow its done now. Nice little kit - not as good as Fujimi but solid nonetheless. Here is the finished model alongside two of the Fujimi counterparts.

Removed the duplicate post for you.

Don't forget to post pics of the finished model in the gallery.

Beautiful build as always. Must get back to mine.

Thanks for the comments guys. Craig, yes I will take some photos and post to the gallery. Will try and get some decent light and see if the 5s camera is all as what it is cracked up to be :)
