No. I haven't had a chance. Major re-arranging of things in my flat is happening right now

Airfix have messed up my pre-order for a Phantom yet again

DH764 bought one at the Bolton show last weekend. I'll see how he fares with it before I purchase one.

Chris Payne has been logging his build here.

I had one arrive the other week, it has a couple of grockles that can be fixed as Chris shows, namely the missing bleed vents to the top and bottom of the intakes and too thin RWR. Otherwise it looks pretty good, although the fuselage panel lines are attracting comment. The decals are outstanding.

Chris Payne appears to be winning with his, others on other blogs are faring worse :fear:
