The Airfix Kit was a gem to work
with, fit was perfect needing minimum of putty and sanding. Though the cockpit fit was a little bit of a fight and
I had to add enough lead weight to sink the Titanic. Other wise it was a breeze to put
together. I used Humbrol Enamels to paint, added a coat of Future and washed the panel lines with pastel chalk. Decals are from
a great build.
Enjoy the photos.
