This is my first go at a plastic kit. I recommend this kit by Flyhawk. It comes with a couple of sheets of PE. This is basically built straight out of the box apart from a few items which I lost on the floor. I used some Uschi rigging thread (0.03mm). I really enjoyed trying something different from my usual wooden builds. Also working at 1:700 with some tiny brass pieces will help my approach to detail going back to wooden kits at much bigger scales.
