Nice review. I will never understand why they removed the Pacific Waves form their livery.

Hi
Generally I think you are doing a great job and hope you keep doing them.

A couple of things you might want to change

Start your review with the model already on display You could show off the box art at the end of the review.
Cut down on the backlighting as it is very distracting and I think your camera is having a hard time focusing quickly because of it.
Use some sort of pointing device to direct attention to the area of interest a capped pen or even a cheap laser pointer perhaps

Anyway those are my tips but you are doing a great service for the community and hope to see more

Thanks

Thanks alot for the feedback. I am manually focusing and I chose to back lit so the aircraft is highlighted, but I will take that into consideration and perhaps have a white card behind and see how that works out. As for the box, I'd have to disagree as I think it builds a bit more suspense having it unveiled, well in my opinion anyway. But thanks a lot for the feedback, will try some different lighting next time!

Cheers.

Fully agree with Ironclaw. Good job. I say take it out of the box first. It will make an shorter review time. I didn't manage the whole 7+ minutes.

Thanks, I think I'll have it out of the box and just show it quickly, then reveal the model, would save the unboxing etc.
