Hello!IMG_8032_zpsesnbg5ki.jpgIMG_8030_zpskwcedfkt.jpgIMG_8029_zpsd3oexva9.jpgIMG_8028_zps2npsagf5.jpgIMG_8027_zpsiobhxdu1.jpgIMG_8026_zps0ufpqzqk.jpgIMG_8025_zps5qwjaitb.jpgIMG_8024_zpshflz0731.jpgIMG_8023_zpsh5yetvsj.jpgIMG_8022_zpszzww1xsv.jpgIMG_8021_zpsexdiqkgl.jpgIMG_8020_zpshduontcf.jpgIMG_8019_zpsqpqle1z2.jpg

This is my view of one famous “Blue Noser  From Bodney”. Neeedless to say the kit is superb, no putty at all.
It seems, looking at the few pictures available, this particular bird was kept in good shape, in general. Therefore, the weathering is subtle, but I decided to add some dirt as it would be expected operating from those muddy airfields in England.

PE and canopy masks from Eduard.

Cheers!

Very nice Blue Nose, George. Excellent cockpit detailing. It's just a shame about that Photobucket logo spoiling your photos.

Thank you all guys! That's true, I'll try to find a way to upload pictures here directly from my computer.

Very good. I like the way the exhaust stains on the wing are scuffed by the pilot's shoes. Nice touch.

Stunning Mustang! 

 

Unfortunately, all pictures need to be hosted elsewhere so you can't upload directly from your PC. There are plenty of other (free) hosting websites if you want to move from PB.

Thank you! Indeed, I'll have look at other sites. Their logo is really annoying.

Very nice :)

 

I've got one of those in the stash to build one day, built one many years ago and it was a great kit, but my modelling skills were lacking, especially in the painting dept.

But now I'm older and have more patience I got another to have another go :)

The weathered metallic finish is especially well represented
