Hi all. This is very late arriving here I made this in December 2013 for my Dad's Christmas Present and I finished it in the small hours of Christmas Eve after working on it for a few weeks every day. A wonderful kit for the money a bargain and highly recommended to anyone wanting a nice big Spit. It has a few issues with the front canopy and rear fuselage for a MKVB I am told. This aircraft has always been special to our Family as my Dad had an Original of the painting of this aircraft coming out of a stormy sky. I had to got to Mel at Miracle Masks who made me the codes which you can't get in decal form having an odd font and size. Same goes for the serials which Pip Moss kindly made for me in decal form. Both performed wornderfully. I brush painted the Codes, spinner and band with revel aqua sky. The main colours are HU163,106,165 From a rattle can and Humbrol Matt varnish from a spray can. I added a metal foil mirror, Decal instrument gauges and used a citadel wash in the cockpit along with the wrong colour green... The decals where good but fragile so watch for that. Chalks where used for the weathering. All in all a great kit Cheers Rob
