Depending on how that 104 prices out compared to the Hase 1/48 and DACO correction set, despite that I avoid 1/32 as just impracticably big, if my gut's right that my gal's dad worked on 104s during his RCAF days I'm tempted to build him one...

It's kinda funny... if she and I somehow work out the complications of geography and budgets and tie the knot, my father-in-law would actually be old enough to be my grandfather. LOL And he for some reason finds it funny that his little girl is finding herself skirt-chased by a MUCH younger guy... O.O

Ok, you can quote me now (or Italeri themselves if you prefer) ;).  The kit will be a newly tooled F-35A and will be available in October.

I can't wait to get that kit in the store, that way we'll have another reason for two customers to get into a hand-waving argument! :)

The kit looks really nice.  :) Minor niggle: Too bad they chose not to include the AIM-9X and fitting pylons, though.

@Alvis 3.1:  ;D Funeeee!
