Hi all, after a long lay-off, slapped this together based on a photo cherished by a friend's father.

It's not quite right, but near enough for him to be delighted collecting it today.

Here's the photo that started it all off:-

And here's the model:-

Brilliant build! The differences between the photo and the finished model are so negligible that they are not worth mentioning!

No surprise your friend was pleased!

Superb cockpit by the way!

Nice Lightning Nick :goodjob: Although the ladder should be mounted on the port side as that's where the attachment points were.

I'm aware the ladder is the wrong side, it's not fixed and I set the model up to replicate the original photo. As I didn't have time to re-pose it before collection, and had built the ladder anyway, I thought I would include it in the shot.

I'm also aware the cable ducts should be extended for the firestreaks as well. It's a reasonable representation of the photo, nothing more.
