The goal of this build is very simple, finish it and rediscover the joy of modeling. Don't worry about all the silly AMS things that always stand in my way. Heck, it isn't that good a kit, so why worry? So far, so good. I can't say I'm enjoying the build...it just isn't that fun a kit, but I am making progress. I'm at the dreaded filling and sanding stage now.
So why is this kit not a contender? First off the cockpit interior is comically small, not that it will matter with the canopy shut. The surface detail has many overdone and intrusive rivets in odd places, and some of the hatches and other fuselage details are raised. Not to mention it is just not that crisply modeled and the fit isn't awesome. It isn't bad, just nothing special. (And just too damn expensive for what you get.)
So the big question is what scheme? Do the usual and paint it in RCAF markings or go really left field and surprise everyone with US markings? Hmm...
Which country uses purple glitter?
