Off the shelf - Sky1
The Imai kits have come in for an awful lot of ribbing over the years, what a lot of them being mis-shapen, inaccurate build your own toys basically, with many parts replaced by wholly inappropriate devices.
But some aren't actually too bad.
Sky1 here's main crime is that its rather squat compared to the original. And some detail is rather clunky.
But, painted up, it gives a nice, cheap, good-sized craft. Altough i did away with the lowering ramp at the rear that lets Straker's car out...
