Tom - I might have commented on this model before. I take the chance to do it again - it is really outstanding! You have captured the piston "Douglas-feel 100%. Have you rectified the Mach2 kit in any way?
All the best,
Harry Bratz ("Metropolitan2")

Harry,
Hello! The Mach 2 kit is a real challenge but can be fixed. Basically, it is almost identical to the Heller kit but with very bad molding. Thus, all the good points of the Heller kit are there, such as the nose shape, but so are the big errors such as the ass end. I've documented the build in a photo album on my Facebook page which is public, so anyone can see what needs to done to correct the kit.
