A very nice review.
I'm happy this kit has been re-issued, as it brings back fond memories from my son's first year. I built one for him back then, when a model only took me 2 days to complete. That was painted, too.
When I built this, I painted it overall yellow and hung it from his bedroom ceiling, where it remained for years. Until he finally brought it down and put her through its paces. All that remains are these few tattered pieces:


I'm very glad it has been re-issued. Now I can build one with my son's son. We've come a long way.

I suspect that the pieces hold value for you as well.

That's a great story, you're so lucky to have that continuity of the generations.

I remember this model fondly. Glad to see it back. Ben, I too keep parts from models of days past. I have also incorporated some into recent builds of childhood models.
