  1. Nice build, of a wonderful kit, of one of my favorite aircraft! Your ability to do stuff this good so quickly never ceases to amaze me (and make me envious).

    The Arma FM-2 kit has gotten some grief in European reviews, because (like…every other kit in the world?) it isn’t quite perfect. But hey, I’ll take something that’s merely head-and-shoulders better than any other 1/72 Wildcat kit, I love it.
