A great kit Steve and I'm sure you'll love the experience of putting her together... Look forward to following your diary and seeing your progress.... Good luck with the build...Cool Cool

Can you also have a look at reducing the size of your pics, it makes is easier for members to view without the need to scroll across the screen. Ideal size is around 650x480 pixels, approx 150kb...

Regards

Alan

Steve

That looks good. I started to build the other unpainted version but must admit i would have preferred this as that pre-painted finish saves so much time and more importantly it really does look good.

Hope it all goes well for you.

Nice start to your build there Steve.

Cannot justify another build at the moment (unless i cancel a coupke which may well happen based on present issues) but if i had not had the original brass version i would have gone with this as i think the painted finish looks really good.

Hope it continues well for you

Tony
