Before the new kit came out, I did my own conversion using pilfered Hase chin pods and an ACMI pod from the weapons set. Decals are Fightertown, which apparently are a bit more accurate than the ones that come in the Tamiya kit.
Nice, this is one of the best model, pieces are formed and fit with an amazing amount of precision and this turned out to be a beautiful model. I would recommend this to anybody. That is closer to the real thing than any of the other models in the market.
