I am calling it done but there are still a couple of paint touch-ups to complete. It was one of those days of correcting causing another issue etc so best stop while ahead!

The Revell kit is simply a gem and though a colour Eduard Zoom set was used, I would pass on that next time. I am left with distinct impression (back up with photographs)that the main tires and perhaps the nose tire are slightly undersized. While pondering the options to finish off the gloss finish - a light hand polishing of NOVUS II was settled on. This gave a nice uniform appearance and appears to add depth to the shine without looking too shiny - if that makes any sense.

Next, the Airfix Bristol Fighter for the MFAKGB.

Thanks for dropping by.

Cheers, Vic
