Yeah it's a bit of a tricky kit, but oh man are the results stunning.  I'm ready to do another, and this may be  my scheme. The only thing I'll add is the amazing AMUR Reaver flaps.

Are those the kit decals??  Flawless work!  Congrats! 

may I put this on our Facebook page?

Really a nice kit, enjoyed the build.


I used Eagle Editions Preddy's decals.

Would be glad if you put on your Facebook page, thanks.
