I thought I could post my other WIF that I did not so long ago - an SU-33 that isn't a sea-flanker  :o

thanks guys

This was my very first ever WIF - all that time before hand it was paint to instructions  :rolleyes:
I have an A400 that I am thinking of doing in some kind of splinter scheme - complete with full lighting. The lighting is the easy part - thinking of the camo design is another story all together

thanks for the kind words fellas!  :cheers:

When it comes time to build the A400 I may well do a WIP thread - depending on my courage level at the time (and level of interest)

Thanks again for the warm welcomes :)
