Hi Sean,

Ok, here I go extending promises again, but I can include an ARC-159 Edge
lit panel for you brand new with the Escapac parts.
And so true about modelers messing up by having A-7 style canopy breakers,
or just the wrong kind of black and yellow markings on their face curtian
and lower ejection handles!
I am actually up right now as I cannot sleep, tonight is like the night
before Christmas, and my mind wont quit racing about tommorow.
As for living in the right side of the world or at least right hemisphere, I
dont think you can go to wrong calling NZ your home. NZ is a gorgeous,
exotic place for which the only thing wrong that I can associate with NZ is
the awful decision to chunk your Skyhawks. Other than that, you are doing
pretty good!
At least you are keeping the Kiwi Skyhawk vision alive!
