Not sure I would call that one a mojo restorer. But I look forward to seeing this one come together 😁

I'm enjoying it so far but it has a long way to go to be as much fun as the trumpeter T38 I'm doing in the weekend in a weekend

Ooh, you can help me greatly. Any chance you could scan the decal sheet? I have a 1/32 E to be built for matey and he wants LN codes, but I'm struggling to find any AM decals for an E. A scan would help with font etc so I can make own codes. 👍

Looking good Darren. It's also looking huge.

It's not a small aircraft mark, and it's going to be a lot of grey mainly grey. That said apart from one thing that revell/monogram did I haven't had to do much cleaning up. The part that was my nemesis on the last time I attempted this kit is coming up, the canopy as this has a really high pronounced seam right down the middle. I've scraped it off sanded it back and now the scary bit the dipping in Klear

Today's progress, I've built the gunsight, a bit of photo etch some film and plasticard, and it's a big improvement over the kit part
