Love seeing this come together. This kit has a reputation for being a bear to get right, but your work looks great so far.

I built this kit way back when and as I recall a lot of the parts of it don't fit all that well, but then back in the late '60s I wasn't that great a modeller so maybe it is a better kit then I recall. Either way have fun and I'll look forward to your posts on this build.

Wow, you finished THAT kit in four days? I've heard some people call those kits nearly unbuildable, I for one would like to see how it looks.
