1.     I am pretty sure this is the old Heller 1/72nd scale Vampire as I seem to recall a black box.... Anyway, this was a sweet little gem of a kit and very enjoyable to build. I experimented with Tamiya Acrylic Silver applied with a brush whilst making this. So it wasn't the best of finishes but it gave me some good experience (never have liked Acrylic, then or since - it has a ridiculously short drying time and is very difficult to thin, airbrush and clean). I recall stuffing extra lead weight in the cockpit after completion to stop it from tail sitting.

2.     I think the rest of this build was straightforward with kit decals applied. 3.     Note the dropped flaps and open airbrakes.
