Excellent work on those modifications Phil and looking good.

It seems you are seriously afflicted with the 'scratchbuilding' bug now, though I have to warn you that once bitten there is no known cure! You will never be able to build a kit straight out of the box anymore!

I know .... I've been trying to build something OOB for decades now and I still haven't managed it!! Blink BigGrin ThumpUp

Top job Phil, really enjoying this build and have to say this is going to be museum quality when finished with all of that amazing detail being added. It looks as though you're not missing anything!

Looking forward to your next update already! Drool ThumpUp
