Well somebody was bound to to it so I volunteer  ;D

The Red Arrows have been at most (if not all) of the late  Queens landmark celebrations so it really should be represented here.

More when it happens........

Hi all.

And so it begins ........

Been doing the pre painting and tidying of parts tho not a lot of that needed.

The fuselage has been assembled but needed a bit of brute force and ignorance to hold it all together. Eric the Cat was not impressed with the clamps pinging off  :D

Looking good so far, though from what I remember, that kit should be better fitting than that . . .
