Just completed yesterday. From the extensively modified Arii kit.
My sincere thanks to Mark Davies who kindly accepted to sell me the very hard to find Sword Turbo Mentor kit, allowing me to build this Beechcraft with correct wings. Other parts come from the Hasegawa T-34 (cowling front with engine intake, propeller, landing gear) along with some scratchbuilding (windows and windshield from colored plastic bottle, spinner, cowl flaps, exhausts, lights, nose gear doors, tail air scoop) and DRAW decals slanted reg letters.

Wow... really nice smooth finish... especially given all the scratching you have done! I've got the same kit which I've mixed with the old Hasegawa Mentor kit... just need to finish it now...
