Rowan,
Big certainly, but not what one would call beautiful by any means. Still, there two aircraft that I will have to build one of these days.

Cheers Joel

It certainly looks set to be a really fun build. I've ordered the Ginter Books reference ready to tackle it one day.

All the best

Almost as ugly as a Stuka. I like it!
