  1. Wow, those lozenge decals are sweet PC. Thanks for that intro, informative and moving as usual.
  2. I can't keep up with all of your builds Simon! Great work so far on the aptly named 'joy pack' Spitfire.

    From Failure to Failure

    An excellent pair of Blenheims PC, the hours of toil are definitely apparent in their twin-engine goodness - well worth it.

    Glad to see back at this one Stew, it could well end up being a contest winner if you so choose.

    Ag(th)reed. You've once again proven that Spitfires look great in silver, Ced. Wow, that's a beauty. And the Silhouette masks have worked a treat!

    Very cool Hellcats Stew, I love the freehand tri(quad)-color scheme on the -3.

    22 to 46 a simple conversion? Penultimate Spitfire to Seafire...

    Here's a link to @Bedders Mk 47, but it appears the ol' Photobucket curse has struck agin.

    Excellent Spitfire surgery V-P!

    They're both looking wonderful Stew. I wonder either of the cowls on my Eduard Hellcats are upside down too. The Hellcat does have a distinctive 'slope' going forward away from the windshield that I think the Eduard kit captures well. The Squadron/Signal Hellcat book states that the easiest way to tell a -3 from a -5 is the paint! Most other features had some overlap. This advice doesn't seem as useful for FAA Hellcats though, as there seem to be some II/-5's that have the TSS scheme rather than Glossy Sea blue.

    Fantastic work on the cannon tubes Ced, (rushes back to check if my Mk 24 has too short tubes - phew! I think I used Special Hobby cannon tubes). They're looking great with primer on.
  12. Great work on the compressor faces Giorgio, this is gonna look fantastic.

    Yes, brilliant stuff Stew.

    Nice progress Ced, I really like the wing on this kit, the trailing edge is so thin the way it's molded.
