Airfix Emil 1/72 scale

Not seen this lovely new Airfix Emil mentioned on the forums - super new red box and boxtop art.

However the plastic parts are date stamped 1976 and this kit features horrible raised rivets all over. Fit is appalling with little or no detail worthy of the name and I very nearly put this one straight in the bin. The only thing that saves this kit is an excellent new decal sheet, so I'll quickly put this one together and use the kit decals for a change. Here the rivets are sanded off and an attempt to re-scribe the slats has been made..
