Great looking model.  And the water base is the most realistic I've ever seen.

Good work! The Attacker looks very unusual on floats.
Best regards,

Great idea and a good looking model - it takes a lot of work to produce anything worthwhile from that ancient Frog mould!  :thumbsup: :cheers:

Thanks for the comments guys, and yes Glenn the old Frog mold leaves a lot to be desired.  The pilot and the intakes are the main downfalls of the kit, so a scratch cockpit tub and extended intakes are a must, and not difficult.  Without the intake mods the whole inside of the fuselage is easily visible. Otherwise it seems close in dimensions and fair in shape.   The good thing about the kit is the price ($8.00 U.S.).  The Attacker seems like a good candidate for a new tooling.
