  1. Hello everybody... I started this kit back in September of last year. I was building the Legato(AZ) 1/72nd Mk.XIVe kit that was given to me by @Procopius. Initially i started to build it as a clipped wing 14. But during the process i was instructed to remove the molded tail and add one just slightly oversize. I was a little confused. I did some research and found that late 14’s and 18’s had this mod. Thats when i started asking questions about 18’s here. I discovered they wore the same camouflage of DE/Light Slate grey over medium sea grey. The same as Mk.VI Tempests in the Middle-east. Now when i 1st joined i came across a thread discussing Mk.VI Tempests in this scheme. A scheme i instantly fell in love with. So back to the the build. I had already clipped the wings for the 14. So i had to reattach those and then began doing the rescribing needed to make the necessary changes. It took a while to come across the paint needed (light slate grey),so the build stalled for about 6 weeks. Procopius and myself met up at a local swap meet in early November. While there i was discussing my paint issue with him. He came to the rescue again about a week later i received a box of xtracrylix paints he wasn't using anymore. The light slate grey was amongst the colors in the box. I was able to restart the build in January with the help of @72modeler‘s decal donation. I was just looking for post war Roundels and flashes. However Mike(72modeler) actually had the markings, and wasn't planning on using them. I finally finished it this week. Though as you will see i made one goof-up with the markings (sorry mike). So without further ado, i present my 208 Squadron Mk.18e from Palestine in 1948-49. I can assure you the Roundel is red not orange as it appears here. If this gets me booted out of Britmodeller its been fun guys. I specifically set the plane up when decaling so as not to do that. But somehow i flipped it around and placed the decal, micro sol’ed it, and let it set for two days. Thats when i caught it, of course to late to fix ? Heres a photo of the spitfire and Tempest. Heres a link to the Tempest RFI, in case you might be interested. Questions, comments, or jokes if you prefer ? Dennis
