Wonderful magic aircraft, flying (this photograph is a proof) without need of canopy nor propeller. Just magics, yes! :thumbsup:

Albatross?

Do you get wafers with it?

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

LOL no you only get wafers with the Gannett  :thumbsup:

She is a nice little kit to be sure. With patience I'm sure it would looks almost like the real thing, only smaller  :thumbsup: I painted it silver with yellow trim, like an early USAF example ( as that's the paints I had down there ) I was contemplating camo and using some bombs from the Dragon kits, but decided to go the 'safe' route. Prob be finished as an early RCN type still painted in USAF colours.

Seems like a pretty nice kit, Captain.  :thumbsup:
I've never built anything smaller than 1:72 but i'm getting the feeling that 1:144 is a really nice scale to test some ideas...  :wacko:
