    Looking interesting. :thumbright:

    However it has been agreed to keep the first post of each thread as short as possible. Just the header only with a picture of the top box optionally. All other details should be posted in the second one because the fist post is displayed as the first one on each page of a thread. I would suggest editing of the first post above and re-posting of the story , the first image , the profile and shots of rasin parts in the another , separate post.

    Hello,

    I have almost finished my Kittyhawk and my second entry in this GB will be a Spitfire IXc EN190 coded FLoA, flown by Colin F. Gray when he was 81 Sqn Ldr based at Souk EL Khemis during March 1943. Colin F. Gray scored 27 enemy aircraft confirmed destroyed, 2 shared destroyed, 6 and 4 shared probables and 12 damaged. He is the top New Zealand fighter Ace of the Second World War.
    Victories claimed with EN190:
    - 1 MC.202, 2 Bf 109
    - 1,5 Bf109 probable

    The man:

    The accesories:

    There is no need to apologise my friend. All is fine now. Just I have made it a little bit more readable on the screen. The profile in the first post , instead of the kit top-box , is a good idea. It makes a nice refference to the effect you want to achieve. Keep the nice work up.
