Has anyone built one of these kits?

I have one from Unicraft and the Miles M.22 and they look somewhat daunting.

Hi Carl just took a look at the kit and the castings pour stubs look huge. Plus there would appear to be quite a bit of casting flash clean up but nothing that would prevent building it per se. Certainly not a Tamiya shake and bake though LOL. What daunts you exactly?

For those wondering here are the kits contents

There is just so much cleaning up to do and I'm guessing filling and sanding, my unfavourite job. And 1:72 is getting a bit small for my eyes.

Goggling seems to only pull up images of what I think is Unicraft's build.
