004 Vanguard

The Vanguard stands over 15 inches high and looks great. I really took my time on this one and the finished product shows it. Unfortunately the model turns out awkward looking and short lived flights. This is due the much of the airframe being constructed of plastic.

Overall this was easy to build but tricky to finish and paint because of all the awkward plastic joints. The flights are not impressive and seem to be very short.
