Here’s a lovely little kit I got from HobbyCraft in the January sales for £4. What a joy to build, this is the first Airfix new tool I’ve built and I loved it 🙂 What a luxury having undercarriage that just clicks into place!
All in all a fun build to do, my first attempt at an NMF and I’m really happy with the results!
