    I go through phases myself.

    Sometimes all i want to make are american, other times it might be russian, or Britsih, or common wealth, or italian, or finnish, or french...well, you get the idea!

    Right now I'm geary up for French aircraft (I have a group build for them on my forum, all of you guys are invited to look and join if you like) and plan an italian one soon.

    Overhere, i have 4 planes for Foreign service goup build, to make in no particualr order:

    Gloster gladiator mkII Finnish winter war colors.

    P-40E in SOVIET service (if the decals suck i have a back up in australian service)

    Hurricane MkI in BELGIAN srvice (bet you don't see a lot of those!)

    Spitfire MKVIII in Australian service.

    Chris, you can try stretching some sprue again - you should be able to get it as thin as a human hair. The trick is to do it in one swift move, keeping it straight until cool. If this doesn't work, then 'Invisible' mending thread is great for this scale, available from any shop selling sewing materials.
