Hi guys

Popped into Marks at lunchtime, picked up the 1/72 Master Craft J-26, and some supplies.

OK, I know these can be a bit of a dog, maybe it's my masochistic side, but I really fancied this scheme. Price of €8 might be worth it for (some of) the decals in these kits alone. I've done my research and know what I'm letting myself in for. However I still hope to build her up pretty quick, and the process might be interesting to those considering tackling one? Anyway, below are some (bad tablet) sprue/decal shots etc...

Below are the decals in this kit. These can be hit or miss in these kits, they seem, to my inexperienced eye, okay. Point to note the instructions paint/decals look smart being in colour etc, but are generic for various boxing's, so be careful with build sequences/variations. Clear parts are passable, not great, but not terrible either, I'll try polish them...

Planning on tackling a few aircraft kits this year, so this'll be a good practice piece :>

P.S. Though the colour plates in the instructions show lots of lovely options, as you can see you only get a limited amount of actual decals in each boxing/version...
