Kit instructions



This is my effort with the AZ model Vultee Vengeance. It's built straight out of the box and is waiting for some kindly soul to produce a vacform canopy to represent the gunners sliding section. I've got to say that this kit was a bear to build. My first attempt was thrown away in disgust but being a sucker for punishment I tried again with a new kit. The second effort worked somewhat better as I had an idea of what and what not to do. I also acquired a book on the subject with helped immensely with the undercarriage. I've been and had a look at the Vengeance stored out near Camden which also helped in my task.
