I'm thankful to the contributers to this thread, because I was consider purchasing it.
Annoyingly Airfix have not reprinted original instructions. On one of their tanks, I've had to get the original instructions to clarify the drawings And the modern sheet has a whole blank page!
Anything about this that makes it a 'must build' kit? Other than D-Day stripes!
I think the original Airfix instructions did make things a bit easier sometimes. Any attempt at issuing instructions with kits now that have English only explanations would probably generate negative publicity so is likely to be a non starter. An option may be to have detailed instructions in several laguages available for download as well as the schematic multi-lingual ones in the box.
Back to the P61 though, I've always been a fan of all black colour schemes and nose art. The fact that it's such a good looking aircraft as well makes it a 'must build' kit for me.
