  1. Beautiful. A very interesting take on the Dakota. I really like these second-line and support types for some reason.
  2. A beautiful pair of Mossies, Tony, which has inspired me to build my two after my initial 'OMG they're going straight on to Ebay' reaction when I opened the box. I particulalrly like the 14 Squadron aircraft which its colourful markings. A curate's egg of a kit if ever there was one but clearly can be built in to a nice looking model. I do think that the spar re-enforcers are overdone on the kit so, when I get round to it, I'll sand them back a bit.
  3. An amazing model. That's a beautiful paint finish you've achieved. I didn't know that the FAA had ever been issued with the night-fighter variant.
  4. A truly outstanding model which is quite hard to believe is based on the 1/72 Airfix kit. The rivets you have added are some amazing work. Excellent paintwork even down to the two different sheens on the spinner.
  5. Thats' putting it mildly. It seems the revolution has run out of steam.
  6. Is there any chance you'll be producing an open bomb bay doors option?
  7. Just to add to the mix is the fact that OS was the code for 279 Squadron and, briefly, 349 (Belgian) Squadron while QS was the code for 192 and 620 Squadrons. I could be wrong about this but it doesn't appear the either OS or QS were ever officially 3 sqdn RAAF's codes.
  8. Perfect for anyone who wants to build a 1/72 RAF Museum Cosford. It's funny how they accurately copied the inaccurate bomb bay doors but inaccurately copied the accurate tail wheel.
  9. In the scheme of things this is one of Airfix's lesser errors with this kit. One has to wonder whether any research was done other than relying on the LIDAR images.
  10. Whats' intersting about this particular aircraft is that it is often portrayed in artwork as wearing the codes OS+A whereas a photo I have seen of it clearly shows it should be QS+A. Looks like Arma got it right which, judging by the incredible quality of their kits, doesn't surprise me.
