Finished at last. Not a straight forward build as the instructions are sometimes vague and some parts don't even get mentioned. On the plus side there are a lot of parts for the spares box. I've noted the difficulties with the decals in the build log. As for the canopy I wish I'd used the kit part to crash mould a new one as it looks far too thick.
All in all I don't think it looks too bad.
