Air Power Series. What a great little model! Hobby Master is making its well deserved reputation on such jewels. The most attractive part of this model is the appearance of being USED, as if the panels had been removed for maintenance, the doors opened, and the exhausts heated. The yellow-green belly color is a legacy of the real plane's British origins, and is very attractive next too the well-applied upper camouflage.

My only complaint (please forgive me, but, yes, again) is the blasted complicated landing gear. I finally busted the braces off one of the wheel covers: it was the only way to get it to fit!
