For reasons I can't fully explain I recently completed this Lightning. Like my MiG-21s, this is a 1/100 scale Tamiya plastic kit. I have a couple more of these in stock - could it be that I'm thinking about a game based on the air defence of the UK? Only time will tell.
I used the markings in the kit, so my Lightning bears the markings of 5 Squadron RAF.
When I were a lad there were Lightnings based a few miles away at RAF Leuchars. At air shows there in the 1970s you didn't so much hear them as feel them! Damn impressive aircraft.
The kit was quite an easy build and despite it's age the parts fit was pretty good.
