I bought this model for my son who recently received his wings as a US Air Force pilot. This is the training jet for air force pilots. I affixed an engraved plate with a personal message on the wood block. It was a big hit.
I cannot even begin to explain what a magnificent model this. First of all it was for a going away gift and it got shipped in record time. Because of this, I was able to get a plate engraved and put it on the base of the plane with two days to spare for the party. It was extremely well received by the person going away and she was thrilled beyond belief at the detail of this model. I seriously can’t say enough about the extraordinary service and quality of this model.
This model is very slim but extremely accurate and relative to it’s 1/100 scale. there are two versions around so check the measurements before you buy, because some are the same price but different size. FYI. I also got the book ‘Concorde’ and enjoy my new model even more now. Will get another before their gone. This is not a toy, its a very precise model replica.
