RA-5C Vigilante

The canopy crisis has been solved and the Vigilante is now complete. Aside from that dilemma, Trumpeter did a real nice job with this kit. From the detailed parts to the decals, this was a winner.
Construction zoomed along with ease. There were a few tiny gaps in the fuselage, but nothing huge to deal with. The cockpit is remarkably detailed along with the wheel bays and landing gear. There are update sets to get more detailed, but this kit comes with more than enough detail to satisfy.
This build took a lot longer than I originally anticipated. I didn’t expect to have the canopy not fit at the absolute worst time in the build either. I was lucky to escape without ruining the entire build.
