I found the Bulldog, but it was missing the decals and instructions. I obviously stored them somewhere safe where I would remember, and now I have forgotten  :angry:

Anyway I did find this

Any guesses which scheme I will be building

Looks like a Tucano

As you can see, a bit of filler was needed. 

I did a dry fit of the crew, they sit too high and stop the canopy sitting right, and that’s after they have been “adjusted “ by Airfix

They fit now after some serious bottom surgery

Looking good H. If you are having problems getting your paint to dry, it may be worth trying some Colourcoats Enamel Thinners from Sovereign Hobbies. They have a minimum order limit but you may find some of their paint colours useful on other projects - an alternative could be XtraColour thinners. I have had very few drying issues when using either of these products to thin paints for brushing.

@nimrod54, @JOCKNEY, Thanks guys. I did some “serious thinnin” (No G) to Steve Wright’s Serious Jockin (No G) on the BBC sounds app. Mrs H says I’m free to use the hairdryer, although the spiders in the shed where the boiler is have objected to the paint fumes.

You are only allowed to use the hairdryer if it matches your missing pink scalpel, and I want to see photos. :winkgrin: Looking very good mate.

Thanks Col, I may leave one or two of the many many tiny stencils off. :shrug:

They get rubbed off with use on the real thing so more accurate that way :whistle:
