Hi Campbell,

Excellent review! Welcome to Aeroscale as well. What a great way to present yourself.

I can understand your frustration about such an expensive short run kit. However, these are often the only option if you want to build aircraft which aren't covered by more established manufacturers. Anyway, as you've said, there is a lot to learn from such builds so thank you for sharing your experience with us...

By the way, do you plan to put the model on a display stand?

Jean Luc - thanks for your comments.

No - I wasn't going to mount the model - it's hanging from my study ceiling with a Wyvern, Skyhawk and Skyraider. My wife hates them!
