    I appreciate it guys but, as I said, you only need to look a bit closer to see the warts - wrinkled decals and glue behind the canopy. The photos don't show those issues very well - ON PURPOSE!

    Not hard on myself. Accepted it for what it is, shelved it and jumped back onto my 262.

    In amongst those couple of minor wrinkles these is some really fine work Andy, well done. The worst issue is the italeri nose art decal, the construction was excellent.!

    Cheers
