    Username: Vic Balshaw
    First name: Vic
    Category: Judge – Non competing
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Tamiya – 61053-2800

    Extras: Eduard ED48 215 etched detail set. Ventura VA4872 decal for Aussie aircraft. Plastic Model Club MM48 010 canopy mask. Minimal scratch building and a modicum of patience.

    This is my only entry into the Heavy Hitters II build, I felt I needed to take some time out for w while. My sincere thanks to all for helping in whatever way they could with the information given in support of this build. Such help is always given freely and with such genuine interest and it is this benevolent attitude that is one of the hallmarks of this forum. Thank you again everyone.

    These are my official six pictures:
