Hi guys this is what i am going with. there are a lot of pieces in the kit and from reviews its no shake and bake so wish me luck. i will be making a start on it after weathering my Tamiya M5A1 and painting my 1/16 Panzer Crewman. there are 4 colour schemes in the kit ,all in Olive Drab so not much choice.

Great choice Stephen and a really unusual design.
Definitely one of the forgotten planes of Vietnam.

Look forward to this one.

Hi Guys had a free couple of hours over the weekend so i managed to finish off this kit. First of all its a nice kit in a way but a bit soft in some details. the canopy is an absolute nightmare as the 4 parts are really bad fitting and were warped. it is a Big Tail sitter with not much area for weights and i even put a big weight just behind the cockpit it did not help. The landing gear is very gangly and over complicated and lastly one wing edge is longer than the other resulting in this huge gap, the white bit is all plasticard about 8-9mm thick.

i have put the finished pics up in the Gallery.
