Thank you
So far, everything is lining up well. Some fits are quite tight and you have to make sure any tiny remnants of the sprue stubs are sanded down and follow the instructions closely.

Top sections of the wings are taped in place to check the fit, especially around the wing light blanking areas which may require a bit of fettling before everything is glued down.

I can't wait to start mine!

I have two, I want to trade one (they're both bubbletops) for a car-door version, but I can't find anyone looking to trade.

Very nice work on the 1/72 Typhoon Nigel!

I am currently working on the 1/72 from Airfix and have the 1/24 in the stash. Looking at the size difference, all I can say is: OMG!
