The Kinetics kit is finished as a S2-G flying off HMAS Melbourne in the late 70s. The only commercial aftermarket items used were the Aussie decals markings with all other updates simply modified kit parts. This is a good kit with the greatest challenge being getting enough nose weight into it to stop it being a tail sitter.
