The kit is built almost out-of-the-box with exception of an Eduard cockpit detailing set but because of the thick transparent plastic parts you cannot see much.
In hindsight I should have tried to source vac formed clear parts.

The build requires a little filler around the fuselage halves and care is required not to sand off the detail, I had to scribe some of the recessed panel lines back with a craft knife using some flexible metal strips as a guide.
I used Tamiya acrylics for the overall colours and pastels to weather.
I also used Alcad aluminium for the chips revealing bare metal surfaces. Panel lines were first sprayed with Tamiya smoke and then a little light grey pastel rubbed in once dry to pick out the detail.
Overall it's a nice kit to build and comes recommended.
