This is the Mark II, should be a simple straight forward build. I have about 3 of these kits, can't beat the cheap price. For some reason I really like the page on the back of the instructions.

Of course the build went pretty fast, will add fillets and brush on 3 coats of balsa sealer.

I am even more vintage than the Mark II that you have built, but I'm not nearly as pretty. ;)

Aww... Come on Mark. A little fill-n-finish and you would be just as pretty.:D

All done with the Mark II, fun build should fly great. The decals went on nice and smooth for an old kit. The nose cone was glued in with extra glue so when I pushed the cone in the glue oozed out. I then smoothed the glue out and the joint is seamless. I then brushed on 3 coats of Aerogloss balsa sealer. Couple coats of Plastikote primer followed by Old Krylon Gloss yellow and black.
