This is a great old kit
The cockpit is very sparse though so some extra detailing there will help. Plus the canopy is not a good fit. I built one of these during a blitz build some years ago on the old UAMF site. I really enjoyed the build. You may want to search out my build as it shows where most of the filling was needed.

All the best

Greg

Thanks Greg,

Could you post a url of the old UAMF site? I am a fairly new member.

Or a link to the build....?

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/gregersfr/greg-s-sunderland-t7442.html

Is this the link you are referring to?
