Another great choice, I've just googled the RRP which comes in at £15.99 which is well within the limit :D

I'm looking forward to this build.

Now that I know it qualifies I can start work on it :lol: :lol: :lol:

A look at the contents:

The clear parts are very well moulded with very good protective pieces on the sprue

I did however paint the two vertical fins and the airbrake in the correct shade of blue.

And finally the awesome decal sheet

Thanks Mark :D

I tend to be drawn to the more colourful liveries - not at all fond of the plain and normal grey markings :laughing-rolling:

love the subtle shading to break up the grey, grey and more grey.
The squaron colurs are very smart and a chnage form the usual tiger meet schemes.
