You could try sitting outside the gates with a sad expression and a bit of cardboard with 'Modelling hobby to support. Please help' scrawled on it.

Looks good. I have one on order. I want to build a wartime Benson-based example, which I believe is featured on the forthcoming Xtradecals set.

I can't do a sprue shot as I'm already building mine, but here are the main airframe bits - I'll get my camera brain engaged later.

They all say that...

OK, some quick pics for tonight including the moulded side wall detail - there's more stuff on the sprues to add.

Single piece lower cowl and the carb intake.

And a shot of the nose showing the panel and faster detail. Now I like this level of detail, it takes primer and allows me to polish it down with Scotchbrite to get a smooth surface for paint, something I do with all my aircraft models.

That's it for now, supper's ready!

Thanks for the pix above Jonathan.

However, is there any chance of a pic of the clear parts please?

Thanks,

Dave

I suspect some parties are going to knock it for the depth of the panel lines (by the looks of it), but I'm very impressed so far. I've been eagerly awaiting this since it was announced, and Airfix haven't disappointed. IMO.
