Hi Tim

That seriously does look rather tasty! I almost regret sending it on to you without even stopping to open the box now!

All the best

There is talk of this kit being inaccurate on Britmodeller. Apparently the whole nose from the cockpit forward is wrong and the something about the radar operators compartment that is wrong.

None of this is said be me as I can't say whether it's accurate or not! It will be a shame if it is inaccurate because of the high price!
