Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

The Eagles have Landed 1 - The original MPC Kit
The Eagles arrived quite quickly from CultTVMan'shop Hobby Shop. Well boxed, quick shipping and excellent prices, my hat is off to this online store, I highly recommend them!
I ordered all three kits and I'm going to go through the classic box opening for each one as a separate thread. We will start off with the original MPC kit that has been re-released by Round 2 Models.
Round 2 hasn't done anything to update this kit, so these are all produced from the original molds although I believe the decal sheet is at least new and possibly updated as well. Since this is basically an original kit it has all the inaccuracies of the original so I decided to go for a slightly more accurate version and bought the Paragrafix photoetch kit to fix some of the inaccuracies.
I plan to build this kit first since its been a while since I built a serious model kit.
