Very nice job, I haven't seen one of these built up for quite a while.

Great looking model, most carefully and skilfully executed.

Agree with the others - superbly built and finished. Without the figure it could be taken for the real thing!

A superb build and finish. Not a model I ever wanted to build, I may have to rethink that.

All the best.

Thanks,
It needed a bit of fine tuning and adjustment to fit but I think it builds up into a nice little kit AND the figures hands actually sit on the controls which is a novelty.

Very smart.

Looks like I really should add some of the Bond film aircraft (and maybe the cars?!) to my collection...!
