I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't include the "Flower Power" markings from 899 Sqn's disbandment. Roll on the aftermarket!

Those Sea Vixen missiles that comes with the kit appear Red Top to me rather than Firestreaks.

You are right. That was my mistake in the review. Cyber-Hobby includes Red Top missiles. They're not bad in the scale, but could be better. Which pretty much sums up the kit. Not terrible, but could have been a lot better.
