Pretty good kit by Academy, released in 2008. For this build I've added the Aires cockpit set and Black Dogs detail set which includes the avionics bays, the spine, the radar, canon and engine. There was a lot of modifications, cutting and some scratch build. All weathering was done using oil paints.
