    Ok, so far 100% voted for 'yes'.
    If that hasn't changed when I get back from America (17th - 27th October, New Jersey & New England, for those who are interested!), I'll make a start.

    Sadistic bunch...
    :grin:

    Ok, so I'm back, and the net result is that more of you have said yes!
    I'll start construction tonight...

    Would you like a series of 'ongoing construction' pictures, or not?

    Tough, you're getting them!
    Here is the box & kit parts...

    First impressions - if you want a kit of the Hind, don't bother with this one, unless you like a challenge!
    The parts all have rather prominent 'mould lines', there are lots of those nasty raised circles that are apparently a by-product of the injection-moulding process, the small, detailed parts have a very soft, rounded appearance...
    They do provide nice decals for the instrument panels. However, the panels are detailed already (so spend ages filing it down or just paint it yourself), and are actually slightly smaller than the decal!!

    Oh, and 1:72 is far too small for this paint job! :roll:
