RCAF Thunderbird 2

I've said it, and now I'm doing it. Managed to get an Aoshima Thunderbird 2 through a friend, and Canadair North Star decals from Belcher Bits, and we're off to the races! Pod is done, I did the outside of the door in a hi-viz scheme for safety.

Just a test fitting, still a lot of painting and fiddling and swearing to do.

A bit more progress. The 3 little modules that came with it have been repurposed in RCAF service, explained in the upcoming back story. Still some touch-up to do obviously.
