This build started a bit of a while ago in a Group Build and latterly was a labour of love. But it is finished. It is also an example of what's great about BM. Rob G in Australia gifted me a replacement set of tailplanes and Brianthemodeller a set of Airfix stencils. Its finished as an 892 Squadron aircraft from HMS Ark Royal in 1969. It's not quite OOB as the fin was recharged and shaped to remove the RWR fitment, which took a fair while due to the hardness of the plastic. I added some seat belts from painted Tamiya tape but otherwise to keep the Matchbox feel nothing else was changed. The upperworks were painted in Xtracrylix Extra Dark Sea Grey and the underside in Citadel Ceramite White finished off with Kleer. As well as Brian's stencils I used the original MB transfers, which considering were probably 30/40 years old went on fine, albeit a little yellowed on the underside serials. The build thread is here: An underside shot to show the multitude of stencils if nothing else And a comparison with a Seafire from 1945
