2.     The model was built when I was a teenager. This makes it the oldest displayed item in the collection. 3.     There are many newer kits in the attic but this is the only one from that era that remains photogenic.

4.     The photo's don't show too much detail. The aircraft is presented on a base made for it in 2004.

5.     A close visual inspection will show the kit has not been painted to the standard of more recent efforts.

6.     The model does not have engraved panel lines. 7.     I did, however, scratchbuild this instrument panel and many cockpit details. 8.     The weapons are all from a Hasegawa Weapons set suitable for the Vietnam War era. 9.     The base is real wood that has been stained and covered with a colour photocopy of a Verlinden hard standing material.
