    One of the nicest(and cheapest) 1/72nd kits I've ever built.
    Thought I'd leave her nice and clean in "airdisplay trim".

    Did you open the cooling gills yourself or were they already splayed?

    I like the unusual livery

    Real nice looking Jug. What is painted on the engine cowl in Yellow?

    What is the paint scheme from? I've never seen anything like it.

    The scheme is done from the kit's instructions(can't remember the pilot's name or the unit for toffees).
    It is a UK based ETO Jug,IIRC.

    The yellow script reads "Shoot,You're Faded".

    The other a/c on the decal sheet is "Dotty Dee"

    Neat work.
    It's the 56th Fighter Group, Boxted, Essex (and other locations) UK. This unit used a number of different camouflage schemes from late 1944, many based around blues and greys, and most with polished, bare metal leading edges to the wings.
