I would expand on the "good job", and add a wonderful job! These are
beautiful vacs, and well worth the price. If you're not afraid of
vacs, and have "limited" funds, I would recommend these even over
<gasp> Pegasus. The only thing I wish is that he would go back to
providing white metal with his kits, instead of the injected stuff.
Comparing the white metal in the DFW C.V to the injected in the
Phoenix C.I I would prefer the white metal. However, don't let this
stop you from getting these kits. Most of the injected you can work

Not a real problem with decals. Just get Blue

Again, a beautiful kit.
