Wow, very impressive, just how big is it? I read the Robin Olds book, I was bit disappointed at the lack of detail from his time with the RAF flying Meteors but the Vietnam stuff is very good.

Cheers guys.

It's around 600x440mm in size. Very impressive in 32 scale.

Not read the book. Is it worth a read?

yes if only for the Vietnam part. It was written before he died at the behest of his daughter. Quite a bit of hero worship in it but reading between the lines I'd say there's a lot of stuff that couldn't be published. I got a very strong sense that he shot down more MiGs than he claimed, and gave the kills to other pilots, or passed on opportunities to give squadron mates the experience and credit.

Puts My Luftwaffe 1:32 Phantom to shame, cracking model. Captures the 'look' well.
