They were a brilliant education. Actually they were fabulously illustrated. I used to wonder who the artists were.

There must be an interesting story or two there. Deadlines, quantity, quality etc.

I used to love these books ... you can still buy them in WHSmith 👍

this is brilliant!

 

the paint and weathering are spot on, I love how you've distressed the markings, are they decals or paint? either way you've nailed them.

Cheers John I'm having a blast as always👍 im over the moon with how things are going with the dirty ..the markings are decals applied,then a coat of Matt coat over the top finally rubbed back with very fine sandpaper.. experimental stuff but I'm happy enough with the results👍

Looks like it was a formation of 5 that then all crashed into each other and somehow managed to keep flying 🤣🤣
