Ok...here it is. Finished as far as I can tell and it wasn't a physical problem so much as an emotional one. I became so discouraged somewhere along the line that I almost shelved the project. Perhaps it was the heat here in Greece...Then the wind shifted and the weather improved and I buckled down and got on with it. I must say that once I had it painted and assembled (sans markings) I was more enthused and then when the stars-and-meatballs went on, I breathed a sigh of relief! It really does look like a Tommy! Paint is Valejo Russian Uniform Green, Flat Red and the nose is Humbrol Yellow from the can. Decals are scavenged from the excellent Kaydet sheet by Xtradecal. Rigging is a mix of stretched sprue (rear bits) and nylon thread (flying wires). Bit and bobs from the spares box. This is a fictional craft as far as I can tell. Not exactly a "what if?" I refer to this kit as the "Montgomery Clift"...from the right profile it looks like a star. Now on to something that is moulded well, fits together properly and, well...you know what I mean. I am very happy with this build and I think it may have been the last Merlin Tommy out there. I hope I did it justice. --John
