Yep, it's working now.

Nice review! The option for opening the canopy will surely benefit the detailed cockpit. I noticed they didn't include the printed acetate sheet with the opened canopy section glass in this release. Guess they dropped it because of the newer style instrument panel made with 2 PE parts. The acetate film would have still been nice to have, as it would have eased cutting the panels.

Hi Stephen

Not this kit, but its big brother(s) - the new SBS Model set is in 1:48.

All the best

Great model idea! Love these 'under-loved' fighters.
