Thanks for looking.

You always choose the best subjects Simon (often Spitfires!) I think the Sword XIV's and Seafire III are my favourites. Of Course, that AZ IX sure looks good in the high altitude scheme, and the smooth gloss finish on the Hellcat is very impressive paint work, then there are the Hurricanes...

 Back in my flight sim days the Tempest was my absolute favorite late war fighter to fly. Yours looks really good.  That Seafire is really cool too.

That's a very respectable finish rate Simon, albeit with the corollary that your stash may well have increased by a greater amount than the sum of your completions (which is perfectly normal by the way, don't let anyone tell you different :D

 

I think I detect an apparent slight tendency toward Spitfires but for me your Beau is a standout B) Of course that might be because I love Beaufighters.

 

Cheers,

 

Stew

A superb collection of Spits, Hurries etc.  Congrats on completing the Sword XIV.  That must be the most disappointing kit I've bought for some time.  Half built it's going back in its box, possibly forever.
