I have an Eduard Fulmar in the stash at the moment. I hope I can achieve something even half as good as this.
Looks Fantastic.

Not a kit you see often, great job on the build. I agree with Pave-Hawk, have one in the stash and hope I can achieve something even half as good as yours looks.

The Fulmar, a curious fighter to me. I just read about it - Eric Brown spoke well of it as a pilot's aeroplane - and now have greater appreciation for it. Jean, thanks for this excellent model!

Yours is a beautiful rendition of this under appreciated aircraft. I especially like your exhaust staining effects - I feel as if that engine cowling must be hot to the touch!
