After doing the 1/48 sea harrier this is a bit ....errrr..... small.

Box and sprues .... not a lot going on but the level of detail is very very good






Started off as per the destructions making up the office seat etc

The pieces .... nicely moulded




And painted and assembled





Something for size comparison ... yep thats a safety match (the decal is just too small to trim successfully so it'll have to sit a little low ... be hard to see through the glass anyway)

Tiny springs to mind.

You are a building machine right now Colin.

I have a bit of spare time at the mo Al

Car went through MOT needing a wiper blade and a side light bulb... not bad for a '99 Saab.. no time needed on that

Elaine has a new kitten to keep her occupied ... which means i can sneak off to the cupboard.


This little 1/144 is going together like an expensive 24th kit .... you could almost squirt some glue and paint in the box and it'd come out built !!!

Ta Buck & Al

Half an hour and i have this


i'm welding it with liquid poly rather than poly cement


The undercarriage assembly is a little delicate, but again.. impressive detail for a diddy kit

Got the supports and racks on for the supplies



Also added the flaps for the undercarriage front and rear fuselage (absolutely minuscule parts) ..........



..........The rear of which was in three bits, but made up into this ... matchhead size ... not bad detail at all

Gave it a paint and am just waiting for the wheels and supplies to cure fully before lavishing it with all the minuscule decals.

Tiny is the word!  Clean build, detail on the wheels adds a lot to an otherwise small and hard-to-improve kit.  Decal sheet itself is small, a strong hint that decals are eensy teensy!
