I've got a spare set of those pitots if you want a replacement.

Seriously? That would be awesome. Was contemplating having to try scratch building which I fear is beyond my current skill level. I'll send you a PM.

Finally completed this one. As mentioned I'm still very new to this and very much looking for advice, feedback, etc.

Did manage to improve a few skills I think and learn a few things, also quite a few things I could have done better.

Massive thanks to Woodziee also for saving my ass with the pitot tube!

Decided to move on to a much easier build for number 3, the Tamiya 1/72 F-117 which looks like a nice and simple kit (definitely in terms of decals, I need a break from those after these first two kits, lol)
