Glynn, stick that on a proper base and a little weathering, it will look real! Sorry if I missed it, but will you be sticking some bombs on this?

 

(Really wish I did this GB too now)

As other have already said, well done with rescuing the paint scheme from disaster. It certainly looks very much better.

I am muzz ,cheers I've been doing the hardly seen time consuming bits along with completly repainting the black on the undersides and the nose, I've fitted the landing gear and built up the pylons and the bombs, only the rear wings to fit,and whtever else I've missed

Cheers

Thanks rich ,got a bit of a job on though, after having to repaint the undersides due to isopropyl leeching under the masking it got in the intakes as well, as you may have noticed no white, I'm in two minds ,attempt it with the hairy stick (not confident it'll turn out right)  or a masking job ,more time consuming, slightly edging toward the masking up at the minute

The trial continues, I've  applied some stencils, and the decals, and I've  given the top and sides a spray with halfords satin laquer to seal the decals in  ill let that dry and attach the hardware,  i know the eagle eyed amongst you will notice most of them are from "A" but thats what i had and there wasn't many on the aftermarket sheet i had, not far away now ,

Cheers
