Greetings Ladies and Gents. This one is one of my "hangar queen"s. I can't actually remember how long it has been in anguish around my desk. I bought it years ago in a Matchbox box but it didn't look like one so I searched for the kit and it turned out to be a really old Revell mold. My plan was to build it as a VVS leased aircraft but I didn't have any decals so I decided to go for a probable one, I generally like building "what-if"s and "could-be"s so I went wild. Finish is below my standards but hey I am happy she's out. Oh, I lost the nose antenna so I scratch-built it, that is the only interesting thing I did on the model actually. Cheers...
