Really good Kev to see it as build of the month.

I have been after this kit on and off but left it at “off” for too long and what appears on ebay is too expensive for me.

On a positive note though i read that hasegawa are re-releasing this one in Feb i think it is so hoping it will have a better price attached to it.

Thankyou for your kind comments guys, I am truly appreciative of them and the award, it means a good deal to me, so many thanks.

@ Tony - I was looking for this kit for a long time too, with most of them being only available as a Japanese import through the like of Amazon at around £50-60 just for the kit. I didn't want to pay that but one day got very very lucky when doing a general google search of UK model shops and found one in stock at the super low price of £24! I bought it there and then and also ordered the PE upgrade set on Ebay to go with it and still saved a decent amount all told. They are there to be found if you keep looking, though they aren't the most straightforward kit to build, very fiddly!

I have been battling Covid 19 since Boxing Day, starting to make a slow recovery, but definitely feeling like I'm past the worst and looking forward to getting back to some modelling, including bringing this build to a finish with my own unique display base which I think will compliment the Vovager probe very nicely.
