    Many thanks folks, you're all too kind.

    A bit of both Jeff, the red and white part are decals though under them I did paint white and I also painted the blue part of the spinner.

    Sorry, can't answer that one Slam as I've no idea. Maybe one of the other forum boffins will be able to chip in with the answer.

    Yes , the Eduard kits are based on Academy plastic parts.. But all additional resin and PE pieces are of Edurad.

    Nicely done Vic, and it's reminded me to add the last few finishing touches to my Academy P-38 - built about six years ago !
