    Hi guys,

    I completely forgot about putting this up as i finished it ages ago, so here you go guys a wee lightning :lol:
    Its length is 6 inches long and has a wing span of 4 inches wide, so she's a little 'nipper'

    This kit is quite old but goes together quite well and i'm happy with the outcome, no super detailing just careful painting and a 'wash'
    to bring out the panel lines and the nose ring is just ally sticker backed foil, i decided to put it on the stand showing it as in flight.
    I think she's a RAF Binbrook 5Sqd Lightning.

    Enjoy......

    Nice job on such a small model Ian, and yes, it's 5 Squaron. BTW, what 'sticky backed' foil did you use?
