I have been slowly getting back into building of late and decided to grab this kit from my stash for something different. I was a little nervous as it is about the same size as a 1/72 Spitfire, the fuselage anyway.

They make it pretty easy as the wings and fuselage are moulded together so you just attach top and bottom. They have gone to a lot of trouble with detail here some I feel is a little over the top for this scale. You get two tiny crew members, a cockpit and a crew ladder. I can understand the crew ladder as you would be able to see it. But I doubt you would see cockpit through the tiny portholes. Also present are landing gear if you want to pose it on the runway.

As usual I am doing this desktop model style anyway so won't be using the interior.

You also get 2 shrikes, an ECM pod and as Cyberhobby also do a nuke carrier you get a Blue steel as well.

I would have loved to have seen a simple plate for an open bomb bay with bombs. I know it's 1/200 scale but as mentioned they provide 1/200 scale pilots!! Not to mention the tiny antennae.

I have only lost one piece so far the little bumpy thing that sits on the side of the tail. Been painting it and so far so good although as usual I freehand my camo and despite my best intentions of keeping it accurate I go off into whiff territory pattern wise. Another nice addition would have been a 1/200 scale illustration of the camo scheme to cut out. As the model fits easily onto the instruction page this would have been possible.

Better to fettle than to fill

Interesting that you needed filler. I didn't have an issue with fit on mine James.

I seem to remember the bomb bay insert was a little loose. We're only talking about tiny amounts
