...Especially since it suggests a better way to get to the Mk.3 than the Airfix kit. (Not that the Airfix kit is bad, but, hey...)

I guess I got lucky with my bad 20/400 distant vision--the only distance I can see very well is right in front of my face and up to almost touching my nose. Comes in handy for braille-scale! Even at 49 my close-up vision is still the same as when I was young, which is great as I have always loved 1/72.

Thanks, Bo!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your comments, that means a lot coming from such an incredible modeler as you--I've always considered you, Roy Southerland and Steve Hustad the best in the US in 1/72.

FYI, I screwed up the dorsal fin on the JP, I cut and attached it too short--it should extend further up the fuselage almost to the next panel line. My bad.

And, looking at the pictures I realized I forgot to paint the red anti-collision light on top of the fuselage!

Cheers,
Don

Depends which Airfix kit! The mk 3 is ancient and 'orrible!
