Hi Rod,

I have the Airfix model and wonder what the difference is. Looking forward to more updates.

Did this one years ago. It’s a lovely kit.

It’s looking good, the engine is very nicely painted.

You really have a tallent for this Rod, highlighting the panel lines and surface detail is sublime, what a shame to have to cover those engines. Muy bueno amigo!
