It's a great model. Being tall and thin, it will stand on a shelf (as long as it's not a high shelf !!) and take up very little room
I didn't know it was available in the UK yet.

here are a couple of pictures of mine, after completing the first stage and then complete

I really enjoyed this build and it looks great.
