I love this! You nailed it, great job.

My only suggestion would be to install a light in there so one could see the interior

Any chance for some better lit shots through the doors showcasing the interior?

Having watched this model take shape, I pestered Alan to send in a build feature as I feel his effort needed to be preserved and highlighted. I really enjoyed watching this go together and I want to thank him for sharing his efforts with us.

Hi Johan,

Many thanks for the comments. I'd probably have to take the doors off to have any chance of getting a decent picture of the interior now, but fortunately the eye can adjust if you pick it up and look inside.

Cheers

For those who might be interested I noticed on the weekly flyer from Hannants that Eduard have a set of Internal and External PE for the MK IV scheduled for release in January 2015.

A bit late for me, but might be very useful items if they add detail rather than simply replace items.
