Finally I got around to take photos of my most recent compeleted model. I decided to build the model from the 19th Fighter Squadron mainly because I wanted to keep the yellow outlined roundels in my spares box.
Here's another completion to celebrate getting my access back through my AT&T device. It's the the old tool Airfix Spitfire Mk.I finished as an aircraft from 66 Sqn at RAF Upwood in 1939. The two blade prop was snagged from the new Mk.I kit as it was going spare anyway. The decals are from a Kits at War sheet. I think the aircraft should have the early unarmoured windscreen, but I can live with the discrepancy. This is one of the few models I've ever painted twice; the first time I painted it, the clear gloss coat crazed all over the bottom of the model. So I stripped it down and started over.

https://www.flickr.com/gp/149247612@N04/CV2mz3 Finally found time to upload my 1:72 Airfix Dogfight Double, only the 3rd kit I've attempted, trying out some simple weathering techniques, and I'm quite pleased with the end product. It has been a learning curve, I enjoyed the little bit of info on the build instructions about the pilots and the aircraft. All in all it was a pleasant build, any feedback is welcome.
