Good looking model. Very interested in this model. I hope more 1/35 aviation subjects are forthcoming.

Nice build, Kevin!

I'm glad to see that manufacturers like MiniArt and HobbyBoss find very interesting subjects while others seem to suffer from "exhausted inspiration".

The scale is also a good choice and will be a godsend for diorama / vignette modelers.

Judging by the kit number, this one must be first from a new series by MiniArt and let's hope they will keep their good habit in listening to critics and constantly improving the quality of their kits.

Thank you for the informative review!
