    Thanks Mike. I've only finished one other Spitfire but got damaged when a guitar fell on it, I'll get it fixed by New Year though.

    If the leaping Panther transfer goes wrong, PM me as I've got a spare that you're welcome to have.

    I think it looks quite a lot better than 'not bad'.

  7. She's looking rather fabulous Bill, although I was thinking that the wings were a bit 'stunted' until I realised that... D'oh!

    The little blisters have gone and she's nearly finished: Thanks for looking.

    Thanks and she's even more nearly there now. Only the wheels and drop-tank to attach, the matt coat and weathering to do: Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Alan. The stripes aren't as good as I'd like them but they'll do. I have the canopy framing to do... joy. Thanks Rich. Thanks Dave. She is nearly done - as the photograph below will show - and don't get distracted, crack on with the Aussie P-40s (which are looking good, by the way). All the transfers are on.* Thanks for looking. * apart from the underwing roundels.
  11. She looks rather splendid and makes me want one.
  12. Andouillette... one of the worst things I've voluntary sat still for.

    I think that I've done all the stripes... A few touch-ups are required and it's not prefect but I'm happy with it. Thanks for looking.
  14. There used to be a Scottish cafe near where I live; it was a sad day when it closed and re-opened as a French café because much as I like croissant, pain au chocolate and cafe au lait, Lorne sausage is a thing of which brings joy to an otherwise dull existence.
