And build a few of these Academy kits back then - it's a nice little kit, and I'm happy to see people still build it despite the gorgious Tamiya kit appearing later on

You put a nice silver finish on yours, I love how it shines in the last picture

If I may comment on something - I think it is impossible for the pilot to climb in unless he is very very very slim, I made the same mistake with the antenna mast on my kit...

The silver finish came out beautifully, and the markings look great. Very handsome!

Your photo is really nice- Very NICE build. Of course you know how incredibly hot it can get inside a bubble canopy on a hot day-- I am sure they left the dome cracked open a bit to keep it cool.
