Nice choice Casper. I love seeing people build these older kits. So much more interesting to watch than a new kits that almost falls together !! (although I will choose a modern kit most likely :oops: )

You're making a great start, and I love the stretched sprue framework. It's brilliant !!
Cheers

The canopy has no frame so this will be fun to mask but its fits pretty well considering

Don't get much time when working roy but I had a week booked and because I'm full of cold (and the Mrs but its not as bad as mine) ;) I thought i would make a start and
got most of the paints but no light blue so may mix some up so i can carry on.
might try and join the two fuselage parts today
