I'm torn. On one hand it's very welcome but on the other it's an Armory kit and considering the work I am putting in the Bf 109E just to get the parts to fit I don't know...

Aw shoot! I somehow totally blanked the brand name and automatically read it as another Yak by Northstar...

The NS kit can’t be beat. Where’s my razor saw? :lol:

I saw the word "Armory" and thought, mmm, maybe a "little" bit of work involved with this one. I assume that it will follow the usual 2-in-1 approach, which does count for something. Northstar quality it won't be for sure though, to be fair, NS does set the bar at a height many manufacturers can only dream about. Somewhat surprisingly, I also noticed the Armory Yak as a future release on the BNA website here in Oz, yet no mention of it at all on Armory's own Facebook page.

Yes, it's an Armory kit. I recently ordered the Yak-1a,. and had a look at the exhaust stubs you are supposed to glue at the correct place . . . after cutting and cleaning them . . . . and put it back in the box . . . until I'm in the mood . . .
