I love the Starfury. Easily one of my top one or two ever as well. The more I look, the more I like it. Its funny because for me it was kind of the first starfighter outside of Star Wars I had ever seen way back in 1993.--I was 10 and instantly enamored

I made a RTV copy of the cockpit from the 1/72 kit, putting that cockpit on things instantly "sci Fi"s something Ive been test fitting on various kits.  :)
