Excellent my friend!  Figgies has always been my Achilles heel.   I have studied and studied Sheps books and guides and even wore out his first edition, but still cant get anywhere near what Id like.

Great looking figure for sure!

Wow. No words. Everything about that is superb, the finish, the convincing weathering, even the subtle sheen on the paint. The figure is excellent too, I wouldn't worry about comparisons with anyone there. It turned out great.

 

I guess I did have a few words after all...

 

Thanks for sharing that.

Rhetorical question How many people put landing gear indicators on they Spitfires?  :) 

 

This is such a remarkable tribute to Mark 14 William. Can't wait to see better pictures in the gallery.

Needless to say,  this is all possible thanks to Brian, who allowed you to live long enough to accomplish this , when he noticed  your suffocation dance in Phoenix and gave you quick Heimlich . Thank You Brian. :) 

Also, if it was me sitting beside you at that time,  the outcome would be vastly different, but certainly more entertaining .:punk:

All the best my friend.

Cheers

M.

Thanks Martin....Won't say much bout that other bit,that's in the rear view and I ain't headed in that direction.

Always appreciate your comments Martin..in fact ..if it wasn't for you feeding my addiction to scale aircraft..don't know what I'd be doing.probly more fishing.
