Canberra PR.9

I’m happy with the results that the PR.9 turned out. However, I find the kit lacking in detail as usual. It’s has a great deal of surface area that there is so much that Revell could have added to make a much better kit. 241 more words

Mitsubishi F-2A 

Hasegawa couldn’t have done a better job on this kit. A performance like this is why we pay the premium for their kits. I had a great time building this kit. 101 more words

The Cougar turned out to be one of those all around great builds to work on. I very happily cruised on through without much adversity. Great cockpit detail and workable decals highlight this kit. 98 more words
