    Please feel free to comment. I've been out of modeling for over a decade and am open to any input, good or bad. Married with 2 kids gives me some thick skin LOL.

    Can't find much fault there Copcheck. They look pretty good. The only thing I can see on the Mustang is the tailplanes appear to have a bit of dihedral but it could be the camera angle. They should be horizontal.

    I agree with above. Again with the Mustang, far as I know, the 4th FG at that time did not mount the triple 'Bazooka' tubes, and the camouflage demarcation wasn't as 'wavy'. But good stuff all the same, and nicely done in this small scale.

    Here is a link to the kit from Academy. I was a little confused about the wavy camo pattern, but the paint and decal schematic that came with it showed the wavy pattern.

    I wonder if the wavy pattern was meant for the version with invasion stripes. Oh well LOL, thanks again.

    ***Edit, I reread your post. I think you meant that I went over board with the wavy pattern, not that it wasn't there. My mistake.

    Nice work mate!

    Looks like the Revell Corsair there - if you want a better prop and wheels for her drop me a PM, got some Hasegawa parts going spare.
