S&M P-8A conversion in 1/144 for Revell 737-800

Thanks to a kind friend, I received an express delivery from Telford in the UK of S&M's P-8A conversion. A big thank you. You know who you are!
I must say I'm a little underwhelmed by this conversion. I was hoping for something a bit more. The conversion consists of resin parts for most of the lumps on the fuselage, the wingtips, underwing pylons, engine generators and pod on top of the fin. Sadly lacking is the MAD boom (but not a MAD) like structure above the APU exhaust. Also the aerials are missing. Sadly things like the bomb-bay will need to be scratch built or etched in the plastic if keeping closed. The instructions are also a dissapointment. More info is required. For AU$25 I don't think it is worth the money sadly. Throw in a Revell 737 and corrected engines, for the same cash you could buy the Contrails or Scratchaeronautics full kits in 1/144 scale.
