    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)

    The model arrived on time and as described. It is a lot off model for the price of £34.99 comes in the usual sturdy Trumpeter box there is plenty of detail in the kit including the bomb bay which can have the bomb bay doors open the only let down is that there are no weapons or weapon hangars in the kit. There is only one marking option and he way it is portrayed on the front of the box is the way it was in real life.A good kit of an unusual subject.
