    Very quick delivery. Shame only Airfix make this kit in this scale - not up to the standards of other well known manufacturers - requires some head scratching to understand instructions and body seam and wing flap fit not great.

    I built one of these when they first came out and it is a great kit. Straight from the box it makes a good model, and I'm sure Lightning experts will be able to add all the required details to make a super accurate model from the contents. The NeOmega cockpit set that is available for the kit makes a great upgrade, and there are plenty of accessories if you choose to use them. There are three marking options in the kit, allowing you to choose metallic or painted versions, and there are plenty of after market decals out there too. Service from Wonderland was excellent - prompt and excellent value. I have one of the kits on the bench right now, and its going to end up as a "vanilla" (i.e. straight from the box) RSAF Mk 53 with overwing tanks in a highly polished aluminum finish (I hope!). The second kit is going to get the NeOmega cockpit set and finish up as an F2a...can't wait to get started!
