Thanks for the kind words gentlemen! Found a few minutes to work on the windshield area! A little light sanding and the canopy contours are starting to become apparent!

After the sanding...

Getting closer to shooting down some primer!! Then the fun part begins!

More to follow!

That's some very precise airbrushing, Alan!

I always enjoy the magic you do with the PCM kits Alan. Some really unique aircraft came out of that company.

The Spit is looking fantastic as one would expect coming from you. Is that tape on the lower wing surface?

Thanks for sharing this with us. Well done on the new paint booth too!

Missed this the first time around Alan but I'm glad to see it now.

That's some great work you've done to turn this into a VII. Having done the same thing on a Tamiya VIII kit, it's a great one to add to the collection.

You are a very patient man to wait three years to start airbrushing. :hmmm:

Thanks guys, I am experimenting somewhat with this build - I will use Mr.Color laquers and I am going to attempt a new painting strategy - similar to what Ralph did with his HB MkV build... I need to expand my skills to stay afloat - so wish me luck!
Cheers

Looks fantastic Alan! I was surprised that I had missed this thread until I saw the 2015 date stamp. You complete your Models at roughly the same pace I do. I hope I get my Corsair done before I start loosing teeth, LOL!

Cheers,
Wolf

Hey Cees, three years is nothing - I started this build back in 2009 when PCM first released it!!
Am pushing hard to clear up all the outstanding builds!
