Hi All This is the Italeri rebox of the old Fujimi kit, and it still holds up well against more modern equivalents. I think I prefer the ease of construction plus the more refrained panel lines over the Airfix equivalent. I also love the novel idea of the rubber tyres! (helps prevent the model slipping about on the shelf!) I have wanted to model this 43 Squadron machine ever since I saw it at the Mildenhall Air Fete in 1986. This aircraft stood out as it was the only one at the show (I think?) that remained in the original camouflage scheme as most had gone grey by then. Paints are airbrushed Tamiya and Gunze Aqueous, and with a mix of Xtradecals and the kit offering. Thanks for looking, comments as always much appreciated.
