Flyhawk's FT 17. It's only 1/72, but the fine detail makes it look much bigger.

Wow, 1/72? Sure don't look it! Very well done, great mud effect.

Leo,

Thanks for bringing my attention back too this model with your very attractive build. I am sure it should do well at the MIMM show in September. 😉 I reviewed this kit back in November 2014 and actually assembled about 80% of one prior to experiencing unexpected personal issues and withdrawing from the hobby for a time. I am slowly familiarizing myself with aspects of the hobby and your post has caused a spark of inspiration in me to finish my two kits, so thanks.

Cheers,
Jan 🍻🍺
