A couple of head's up's on this one! Its not actually a T.7 OOB, it has a series 200 Avon, thus cant only be built as one of the export types. Also, it has the wrong ejection seats. It contails 2 off the MB Mk.3 (brilliant if your building a couple of single seaters!) whereas you need a couple of Mk.4HA's.

As for the kit.. The fuselage halve's dont close over the cockpit, the seats dont fit in without generous/vigorous sanding, the nose wheel is much too small, and the right wing sits slightly forward of the left one if your not careful to align them. I think that covers all the faults! If your building one, then i cant recommend enough getting this set: http://www.freightdogmodels.co.uk/produ ... 56db7d1861" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
It contains all the corrections nessessary to accurately build the kit. Plus its a very good price. Also check out some of the other stuff they do on that site, well worth just a peek! :thumb:
