    Excellent model. Far more accurate in scale than the 1/72 versions. Really impressive on the shelf.
    The extras that LPG sends really make the difference though. The photo montage of the different paint schemes and the airframe history are very interesting!
    The print “Flagship’s Farewell” is truly staggering!
    This is now proudly sitting in my living room here in Calgary, Canada reminding me of home and my childhood around noisy jets.
    Also, the added calendar was a lovely surprise!
    Thank you gents, keep up the good work!

    Fantastic model. Brings back so many good memories of 11Sqn and Binbrook.
