"Kryten! Unpack Rachel and get out the puncture repair kit!" - Arnold J Rimmer.
Thanks everyone for the kind comments. KdK kits are not for the faint-hearted and anyone contemplating building their first resin kit would be best redirected to something like a later Anigrand kit. The former are becoming increasingly difficult to find and, to be honest, I've only managed to build two of the 16 I bought over the years. Of those still in the stash, it is unlikely I'll ever build the I-16, Kikka or Claude as I now have built injection-moulded examples of the three on the shelves.
As for the next RAAF bird, Angus, I do have options from injection-moulded kits, gashapon, resin and 3D to choose from. Maybe one of Decapod's Tiger Moths, perhaps?
