Super as always, John. Any warnings about the kit, or is this basically the Birdcage/Bubbletop with an additional sprue?

Super awesome mate!  I wondered a few years ago when the Birdcage version was released if we would ever see a -1D.....you nailed it. I think this is the first one I have seen built up

 

Cheers

Anthony

Thanks Anthony. I appreciate you help in snagging this kit early on. Tell the guys at Acorn thanks for me!  :)

Thanks Alain. I just don't like the yellow cowling as I think it takes away from the "look" of the a/c. :)
