That does look the business  :bow:

As for wing folds ? I'm a member of the one folded, one not school. Which is fine for back in the day when they were manually folded but not so sure that's true with more modern types with powered folding/un-folding.
Decals my @r$e!

True but I'm running out of space!

I'm happier a bit now, the a/c has had a hydraulic failure, hence no weapons and only one wing folded.....  ;)

Thanks, but instinct told me that scheme would look ok on the Wyvern, much happier  with the result and marginally amazed at the 40 (or more) year old Frog decals!

Beautiful build!  :thumbsup:

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