    Both models look great Keith.I like them.What did you use for painting? I mean a brush or an airbrush. I like the way you applied the paints.:D :D :D
    But the camo scheme for the Spit Mk22/24 seems to be incorrect I'm afraid.:(

    Hey mate, they don't look too bad for a first attempt! Good work.
    Is there any chance you can upload future pics direct to the forum? The Flickr system doesn't show them as clearly or as big. If you re-size to no larger than 800 x 600, they should look cool.

    I think there should have been Dark Green and Ocean Grey.

    Yep, should be Green/Grey, but our friend did admit he'd used incorrect colours.

    great models :) you can always repaint the spit if the transfers are not on it yet if it really bugs you, I think you can also do it in post war silver, but on the other hand in the scheme you have done it in if you come across some RAF Pacific theatre transfers then it makes for a neat "what if", I can't wait to see more of your work :D
