I have been waiting for this kit since I first heard about it. It is to Valoms usual crisp high standard and looks great in the plastic. Nice detail and PE and resin parts too. And a sheet of film for the instrument panels too. The surface hss a slightly rough texture but a quick polish with your medium of choice will soon sort that and as usual with Valom there are no locating pins. The engraving is fine and there is a wing spar to ensure correct dihedral and add strength. Enough of my banging on. Here ae the pics.

All the best.

Greg

I've built this, or 90% built this, from the old Mach 2 kit. Looks great when done! I just hope the undercarriage is strong enough, as it wasn't on the Mach 2! Good luck, and I look forward to seeing what it looks like completed.
