Kit decals look like two from the 353nd FG and one from the 352nd FG (as depicted on the box art)

I see nothing wrong with reviewing older kits, not everyone was into modeling when this kit was hatched and even though I was it was one that was never on my radar.

Thanks for the review !

Hi there

Nice review HG - but it's a kit that's best forgotten from my point of view!

The Mustang taught me a valuable lesson as an adviser to a kit manufacturer - i.e. while they may seek your opinion, that's no guarantee that they'll follow your advice. (There's a long story to be told one day about how my name ended up being on the instructions, but I don't hold a grudge against the others in the team about being left without a parachute... honestly. )

To be fair to the kit, Jean-Luc showed that it can look pretty decent: http://aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=2298 - but I think it's equally fair to say that it's not what any of the advisers hoped for.

All the best

Rowan
