Hello,
Long time I've showed nothing here...
My last model from Airfix, riveted and with airbrushed markings (31st FG, Gozo, Malta, 1943)...
Thanks for looking at !
AE,

Nuno,
Now that's one really nicely done Spit Vb. Just love the USA markings for a bit of a different look. Your weathering is exceptional, as the aircraft has that well maintained operational look to it.

Fantastic paint & weathering, enhanced by a superb photo composition and angles.
Super!

Thank you folks,
The Airfix model is just excellent and provide many options. Some building challenges I admit, but the output is, probably, unchallenged today !!!
