This is a nice kit – good for me to practice with. I have omitted the aerial. Also, there is no weathering – you can find pictures which appear to show a degree of paint chipping. Thus far, I have not been confident in weathering smaller scale subjects – particularly aircraft. Finally, I managed to mess up one of the wing decals – admittedly I think that it was not the easiest to place – so it is not present. Still, every aircraft model I do teaches me lessons and adds experience.
