Just got my first months subscription in, and couldn't wait to put this issue together once I saw how BIG and heavy this is.
I placed a can of Seltzer next to the tire to give a sense of just how big this is going to be. The can is 4-7/8 tall(120mm).
The paint is excellent and the quality of the parts is top notch!
Here are some pictures.
All comments appreciated.

I can see you are going to get some great pleasure from building this one.

It seems Deagostini are using a similar packing method for this one as they are the D-51 model I am collecting. It's very well thought out In my view.

Happy modelling

Tony

Thanks MR T, thanks Tony
The real hard part is coming. Do I add the Spitfire in Nov, or wait for the Lamborghini, or wait for the Harley?Confused
What a great dilemma to be in!

Since I'm in a bit of a stall on my other builds, I thought I'd work a little bit on the Busa.
I gotta say this is one quality model.
