Thanks for the review CopMike.
And don't worry about getting this into the Review Index.
I'll fix it later so that it fits :thumbup:
Oh wait, you were referring to the Academy :blush: No matter, it still goes into the Index :grin:
I wish I had your connections for getting one of these :look:

I think the middle wing is too long. but is a nice little ship any way. I found Chris Deck's to be more accurate though...

cool, can I have a coffe too? with lots of chantilly on top?  :grin:

Thanks for the pics.

The central wing connection looks a bit weird, though. But I suppose the play feature would make up for it...

Nope.
So far this has been released only as a promotional set for special occasions.
