OK; after being distracted by the GB I've caught up. This is one heck of a model, absolutely splendid outcome!

There's no doubt, the HP is a corker.

You can always add some beads and feather and she's going to work as a Dream Catcher!

Well done, Johnny' Thread fellow .

Just a gentle reminder -

I went back to have a quick Recap on your P38,, searching for inspiration, only to discover.....

WIP and RFI both down with a severe case of pb- itis. 😞

I know you average about 30 pages on a build, and that's NO fun to re-do, but the RFI for such a great model has gotta be worth a rebuild!

You know..... when you got a minute!

I'm currently ripping through my old builds each dinner time. I think the P38 should be up by the end of the week. Hope you like it. :penguin:

Thankyou everyone for all the kind words. It makes all the time spent even more "worth it" knowing that you guys are tagging along, enjoying, helping, gleaning stuff along the way. I'm Humbled by your comments on this and all my builds.

Thankyou. :worthy:

 

Johnny.

Absolutely superb work, really does look special. Crying out for a Frog Vimy to join it!

What's the story behind the markings?

Thanks and sorry for late the reply.

I couldn't find anything on the net so I took a snap from my book.

Might be theis chap although his name is K R Park. Probably a typo. Looked awesome though and I'd never seen a kit done in this way before. :lol:

I had not realised that this was finished. Utterly superb model and wonderful base to display it on. First class modelling in every way.

Fantastic work, the words "Silk purse" and "Sow's ear" come to mind

Thanks. I pinched the base from one of my older builds. Looks rather nice sat on it. ;)

Fan-tastic! Best build I've ever seen of this, and an iconic prototype scheme too.
