Looks good, David. Will you be working your usual magic on this one?

Yes Daren I will want to get an improved result from this, PM kits were often criticised but all but the very earliest would scrub up very well and it is a crying shame the moulds were apparently destroyed.

Hi David. Looking forward to seeing you build this one. I did one s while back. A real filler monster. Much nose weight needed too.

All the best.

I have the Airfix Mistel combo. I set it aside for the time being, not started.

With time and effort, this one will scrub up quite well

Construction began by joining the wing halves together, this was followed by pre-painting the undercarriage and assembling the engine nacelles, the nacelle fronts/annular radiators were cleaned up and a short stack of nuts screwed onto a bolt was cyanoe'd to each.
