    Kits went together flawlessly until I hit the flaps and gear doors , had these been build down they'd be piss but since being me in my inifinite wisdom I built them up :oops:

    Heck Daniel, you're rivalling Keith (Ellis) for speed here! That's bl**dy quick work mate, but as long as they turn out OK, it's fine. Would it not have been easier to leave off the belly tanks, masking the locating holes, before spraying?

    Liking it Daniel.. makes me want to dual build kits too. It's like getting two models within half the time because you build everything up at the same time. Good idea!

    Cheers guys!

    Terry you are right , I'm just you know inexperienced! next time!

    Heres the lastest - airbrush gave me a fair bit of grief again ,thought it may actually need to go to the doctor as the trigger wouldn't spring back at all for a while ,abit of cleaning sorted it out though

    The smaller Corsair is my 1/72 NZ5517 which didn't make the cut for the PTO GB , will still be made as NZ5517 and finished along side its bigger brothers

    Aint she tiny! :lol:
