I didn't search to see if anyone had already purchased and built, and if you have please tag this post.  I bought the 1/24 Airfix kit when it first came out.  At the time and for a long while, no aftermarket bits have been available for it.  However, there is now at least one that I know of from Mk. 1 Designs.   It's quite extensive, but if you're not careful you'll pay a bundle for it.  I have seen it for just over $140 with just around $10 shipping from Hong Kong to some guy figured to make a retirement contribution at over $300.  It has some very nice items in the kit which will really detail it, sharpen it up considerable. Total for there to here, parts+shipping $149.  There are a number of decent photos with the listing.

Looking at the one kit that I mention, the one from Mk. 1. Designs, the price is almost identical. Good source for parts for sure.

I'm building the car door version now and I have to say this kit is detailed enough that adding a lot of aftermarket is unnecessary.  That said, I'd love to see you do a Work In Progress thread on your build and prove me wrong.

 

Cheers,

Michael
