  1. the weathered finish looks authentic - thanks for sharing.
  2. interesting subject thoughtfully made.always fascinating to see your super models of lesser known unit.
  3. absolutely brilliant youve inspired a re-tread.Very reassuring that NMF can be replicated with brush.
  4. really nice model of an unusual subject . with respect the u/c doors ( not legs !) should be closed .I agree weathering is a personal imterpretation - heavy rain then bright sun can alter the colour of a real airframe. Allison engine exhausts did stain quite a long way back.
  5. very nicely finished and presented . I really must do my Sweet P51. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for the info which is appreciated. It was me who was confused. ( I received a signal which indicated i had used the wrong thread so i repeated the question as a new thread ).

    Spitfire wing

    this may not be the correct conduit and i do not want to waste an experts time but i have a question about spitfire wings and hope someone will advise (or at least tell me where and how to fire the question?). On certain real airworthy frames there are two bars or reinforcing spars on the top of each wing of Mk 2 or V. I thought these were repairs as a result of taxiing accidents (as opposed to a modern requiremenr or improvement ). Therefore why are these reproduced (incorrectly) on some Airfix and other 1/72 models ? This must have been mentioned before but i just cant find it .Please help?

    Hello Ian.Thanks for the info.I m a bit of a danger with airbrush. Was thinking of trying Mk9c wings with Mk9e fuselage (for the broad chord tail ) alter air intake and cowl and fit tailwheel doors to make Mk8. Will stay in touch.cheers.
