Very nice work indeed. The Vulcan and S-boat stand out for me. I do like V-bombers in anti-flash white.

Thank you everyone.
I was really chuffed with the S Boot as well. If you've never built it, please give it a go. lots more photos in the build thread. Like many of mine, lost in the depths of a GB:

Beautiful Kittyhawk! I built it as a kid and didn't know there was a new tooling. Bought the new Wildcat yesterday which is a fantastic kit.
I hope you enjpyed building the Gotha as much as I did. Another great kit.
