I love to see a beautiful build of a beautiful kit- cheers!, Allen! Nicely detailed and accented, to be sure.

A melancholy subject- to think of the brave pilots who flew this outmoded craft into battle against overwhelming odds.

I've got to get me one of these-

Thank you everyone for the comments

Harry - the buid was ok there was a slight fit issue with the wing to the fuselage and it took a while to clean the seams around the rear end so as not to loose all of the fabric detail.
