    Well now we have a clean bill of health from Firefox, I thought I'd post up my latest completed model.A nice straight forward build of Tamiya's Corsair.

    Straight from the box except for the "wine bottle" seat belts.:lol:

    Once again I used White Ensign enamel paints, I can't praise these products enough. However my biggest problem this time round was the "Future/Klear" which seems to be getting too thick to spray.Tried to thin it, but that caused more problems!!

    Hope you like it :D - sorry there are so many I couldn't work out which ones to ditch!

    I like it a lot. Good job.

    One question though, does this kit have floor in the cockpit?

    Thanks everyone - the positive comments are really appreciated.

    Something went wrong with the order of the images and as for the size, these were resized twice and they are still too big!

    Very nice work Flex. Good to hear about the WEM paints too - I'm trying to persuade my local model shop to stock them.

    Very nice job!!
    I've had the same problem with the order of pictures. Hopefully it's something with the new software that can be straightened out. I figured out a way to post them in the order you want but its very time consuming. You have to pick one picture at a time and download it, then preview the post, then repeat the whole process again for each picture. When I posted a lot of pictures together the other night it took me 30 minuets for what use to take 5.

    There's gotta be a way. I'm seeing lots of good things about the new attachment feature since it allows you to download more than 5 at a time and insert them into text from the manager. I'll have to play with it some more.

    EDIT - just played wiith it a bit and in the manager, you can drag and drop the files to the order you want in the bottom pane.
