Default 1/200 b-1b wltk

This model arrived yesterday, among my favourite military planes of all time. It was ordered off ebay for around $40 USD so the price was very reasonable particularly compared to what the Herpa version goes for (as well as many 1/200 diecast airliners). My expectations were muted due to the price and having not seen anything from this manufacturer before. Anyhow I have absolutely no regrets and would recommend it to anyone wanting an affordable B-1B in their collection. The panel lines are a bit heavy and the tailerons are mounted in a trim-up position but the model compares favourably with rival diecast companies (compare the photo with Herpa's CF-18). NOTE: lighting on the pics was difficult and tends to mess up the colouring somewhat - it's finished in a grey shade that matches well with photos of the real aircraft.

(Tried inserting photos but they only show up as links below, hopefully I can figure out how to fix this)
