    The girl has been done for atleast 3 weeks now just not much opportunity for pics between work,fishing and honey do's.I also have apic of the Mk24 in here also as I said was going to be a test bed for a Polished airframe like from the book "Spitfires and Polished Metal" I say it worked maybe to well but "hey!" I am getting it down pat.I will probably pull it from the GB14 seeing I kinds violated the sanctity of model building :) "but it's all mine" :).CYA ;)

    Thanks fellas but doesn't that Spit look abit gaudy in chrome :lol: it is polished aluminum according to the bottle.I will consider it Terry have to see like I said a test bed.I have a 1/200 U-bost IXc 40% complete ATM going to to do my first weathering on for naval then to the 1/350 Japanese destroyer or the Flecther.My reading of naval conflicts lately has me running in that direction.
