Looks like this kit is coming back. I’m sure it’ll be expensive, but it’s a great kit. I built the cycle wing version many years ago.

It certainly does. If I recall, they were about £200 in the mid 90s, but I could be wrong.

The Tamiya kit is was a lot easier! But they were both fun to build.

I built the '7 a while back. Amazing kit but a bit too much 'bolt it together'.
