This kit has some good detail for the scale, however te 3 tone plastic really does not do it any favours...
Cockpit is out the bx, I woud have liked a decal for the IP or atleast some dail detail but once inside the cockpit it looks OK enough.

The seats are good but lack any seatbelts so I aded them and the chute harnas from tamiya tape.

Looking good Theuns :smt023 :D . Apart from the silly multi colored plastic, it's a really nice kit.
