Nice bit of scratch work there Dave. It's made a lot of difference. Nice one.

Thanks Ron. Not perfect, but it's better than it was - which is all I look for when doing scratch bits. I just wish the pics hadn't shown up all the seam work I missed!:sad:

Some very nice scratch building to add detail to this ancient kit Dave. Great work so far.

Finally! At long, long last I've finished!

Purists will see the decals are not particularly good. I don't know if that's because they were poor quality or just old. There should be a small red centre in the fuselage roundels, but they were separate items for some unknown reason and both disintegrated when I tried to apply them. Both wing roundels and one of the fuselage roundels broke but I managed to fix them.

Not a brilliant job, but it's turned out a bit better than I expected - I'd forgotten how much extra work I put into it!

Can I please remind the Cosford Massive to give me a kick up the butt if they see me trying to buy an old Airfix kit!?

Well done Dave, got there in the end. But wow, look at the thickness of that turret. I'm glad production methods have moved on a touch these days.
