    ...and rather than posting just 4 optional shots, here's a whole wack of 'em with the odd description, starting around the cockpit area:

    This nose shot shows that I missed painting one of the gun barrels, which has since been fixed.

    If you look closely below the rudder, you can see the tail navigation light that I added.

    Didn't really like how the W.Nr decals turned out but they'll have to do. Some white touch ups on the crosses are needed.

    Absolutely fantastic work Andy - should be a winner no problem.
    Not sure if you've spotted it, but in one photo, the radio altimeter antenna under the starboard wing looks like it might have got bent upwards on the front pole, unless it's just the angle of the photo.

    Thanks everyone and well spotted Terry - I've replaced this thing once already for the same reason! I hope the judges are far less scrupulous on Saturday....
