A nice kit of an interesting aircraft
This is a typical new trumpeter kit. Fine engraved panellinse, lots of detail and lots of parts. You get a lot of plastic in the box, but this is a big aircraft. Packagin is first clas with all sprues in sebarate bags and extra padding around delicate parts (Airfix see and learn!!!). The only drawback I can find so far is that there is only one marking option, and not a very interesting one (Trumpeter, learn from Airfix)
