I figured that it is time I try my had at something different . One of the most iconic space planes from the past and as a kit probably just as iconic. I did read a couple of build reviews and found that this kit does have some issues. One is the softness of the plastic which reminds me this is a limited run kit. Any attempt to sand,file or make any effort to clean it up from the part gates changes the shape of the part rapidly and if you are not watching it you will have some filling to do.
