I have this, very pleased with it, as they originally previewed some CAD shots of this some 10 years ago (!)

My copy shows much less of the ‘frosting’ as mentioned in the review, and only on the lower halves of the fuselage.

The MK 1 had longer wings, btw, but the MK 2 as here, had the wings changed to match the flying characteristics of the much larger Horsa Glider, making training much easier.
