||This kit from FlyModel was something I wanted for a long time.I have very limited info about this kit,but from what I think when going through the pages is that it's going to be fun building this one.
There are a lot of parts,but as long as it has no interior it will be managable for anyone with a little experience.
Available extra enhancements are barrel and wheels from Gomix
