As Cop has pointed out elsewhere, not everybody will like the panel lines, personally I'm not bothered, although for silver finishes you might find that they have too much accentuation. The cockpit looks suitably busy and I would think even the seats would be good enough not to warrant replacement unless you are the utmost fastidious modeller. The intake trunking, jet pipe and undercarriage look to be very well done and there should be enough in the package to enable a little gem to be produced with a little effort. Decals are nicely printed with two colourful schemes - decision, decisions...might just have to buy another one!

Cop rates this kit as OK, so although I might change my mind after I start a build, I'll beg to differ at least temporarily and say it's rather better than OK. At eight quid RRP (I got mine for seven from Mr Models) I think it's a very good value for money package and an inspired choice of subject by Airfix.

Nice in-box. Only thing I'd add is that following the assembly instructions is key - Steps 10-12 above, Fuselage, upper wing, booms, undercarriage THEN lower wing panels! Ask me how I know!

I had to laugh at a comment from an elderly gent at Yeovilton on Saturday.... "Vampires? They're for short-arsed pilots!"

Looks nice, not a massive fan of the decal options if im honest, other than that looks like a sweet little kit.

Oh dear - another 'silly little jet' for me, I fear!
Rather liked the Revell one - but this looks better :P

As the colour chart says, WZ507 belongs to the Vampire Preservation Society.
They were involved in the research for the kit and is therefore a fitting subject.
If you go to their website the aircraft sports a rather nice grey scheme (imho)

Guess it will only be a matter of time before the AM sheets appear if they aren't already available Floyd.

Size isn't everything and lots of good things come in small packages. Besides which, little ones tickle like hell. :tease:
