Thanks again folks - I've added a little more weathering to the exhaust pipes - and making some ground chocks for her.

 

Then I'm calling her *finally* done - perhaps...

Well done Iain.   A great journey has come to a wonderful finish.  Thanks for sharing this journey with us.   What’s next?   The Liberator?

That’s just beautiful, I’m sure that your client would be proud to own it.

Thanks for your help with my ( still unfinished ) 1/48 version.

 

Cheers

Wow!

Just saw this RFI!

Gorgeous paint job and soooo smooth.

Interesting subject for sure.

That's pure class Iain, sad in a way as it will be going to your client and not gracing your shelves, but you will still have lots of photos and the build thread and a happy client.

 

Cheers

Thanks again folks - comments really appreciated!

 

My client has asked if I can add a name to the port side ahead of/below the front canopy. I'm reluctant to create a decal as this will be a nightmare to blend into the existing finish - but I think my Silhouette cutter can probably cut a fine enough mask for me to spray...

 

So - not quite finished!  :)

I managed this with my Revell Spit Iain using my Silhouette cutter, the letters are slightly less than 3mm tall:

Looks like I need to get the duster out!! :blush:
