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

Wow, great example of the D.  How the heck did you build it so fast?!

Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

John,

     That looks sweet!  Great job!  Love the doped covers over the wing guns.  Looks ready for action.

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. :)
