And that is the time when, after a long struggle, I can finally add the finished model to the gallery. Even though it is one of Belkits' first releases, the quality of the kit is truly top notch. The decals are printed in the highest quality and its thickness makes it really hard to break, so they’re great for people who are just starting their adventure with them. All stages of the build are available in the workbench WIP and at this point I invite you to take a look at the final result.
