It is a good model, but the importance of cleaning up parts cannot be over emphasized.

Nice, clean, build Darren, looking forward to seeing it painted and weathered. FYI, The markings for "Caesar II" are one of the options included in Meng's kit of the Whippet. Al

Darren, You're welcome to those decals pertaining to "Caesar II" from my sheet. I wasn't planning on using them. Meng includes the markings for "The Musical Box", though the instructions don't mention them. Just pm your address to me and I'll send the ones that you need right along. Al
