Thanks for this review, Andras! Exactly what I was looking for! I guess I'll go for the Flyhawk version then, because I like things to be complicated...

Really? I think it is very good. Some people just don't like to use PE in Braille scale, and the kit will be perfect for them. Personally, I prefer PE options, but from my experience Maco still does outstanding models...

We are in agreement, Nicolas

It's a different design for different purposes- one size does not fit all. I quite like the idea of choice.

A nice review Andras, thanks, a very clear description.

I'm always surprised when I read anyone say that a model only took two hours to put together!! I don't think I ever would manage that, perhaps I'm just too distractable.

I notice that Maco also offer a version of the kit with two models in the box, I think that one has no metal parts.

Good to see quite a big decal sheet supplied in a small scale kit, no apparent corner cutting there...
