  1. Hi Scott Agreed, you need to have a high mojo and.. some patience. I will follow your build! Cheers
  2. Helllo Scott Well.... on my side not many positive comments. Among others: I have tried to assemble one but I could not complete, maybe my fault and I will try again on another one because I reallly like this HC Plastic is very soft and getting the part off the sprues must be done veeeeery carefully You must basically dry fit all the parts as the assembly is very complex with many parts without real positive attachment points One misalignment on one assembly causes some troubles for the rest of the building.You have to make your own assessment of the assembly sequencing. Heving the experience from my first failure I would do it very differently The kit is designed to have all the openings...opened. (cockpit, cabin doors...), my biggest issue was the cockpit doors (if you want like me to have them closed. The cockpit seat must be moved to be in the proper position; All of those remarks may not be very positive however could be partly my fault (a friend of mine faced the same kind of issues). I am very grateful to Kittyhawk for taking the risk to issue such a model in any case and will for sure try to build another one. It is a pity that no aftermarket is available (even from French companies) In a few words take your time, relax and enjoy Hope this does not discourage you, I enjoyed it and will enjoy again Here under some links on my modeling club website 'in French) where you can find some intermediate steps from my friend build: Assembly Assembly and painting Cheers Nicolas

  8. I am starting the same kit and I am very interested in the details you've added in the cockpit especially the rails for the helmet! Do you have any detailed pictures of those (and the cockpit) as I am struggling to find some on internet ? Cheers
  9. Hi Phil This thread is really awesome. Any update?
  10. Hi everyone, I am going to Malaysia for a business trip and I wanted to know if there were some good shops in Kuala Lumpur....just to plan the size of the suitcase I need to take :whistle:/> Thanks for your kind answers Nicolas
  11. Same for me for shipping to Europe. I know it is not there fault but still, I think the US retailers will lose some overseas customers! That is sad !
