  5. At the risk of being beaten up by the locals for being a smug git again I'll show you a pic of whats sitting in my other work place
  6. Different operating enviroments. RAN aircraft tended to operate in warmer climates than their RN sisters and would have flown with a leaner fuel mixture. Sea Furies will almost always get little black stripes behind the exhaust stubs (my 647 still has them) theses are small burn marks on the heat shield. Sadly though some modellers choose to show their aircraft as if its been flown jammed in full rich.
  7. I like it. Excellent build, accurate and doesn't have great streaks of black crap down the sides from the exhausts Well done indeed.

    Venom rockets question

    Venoms use zero length rails, Mossies have the longer variety. RP's themselves are the same.
