Thank you for setting me up.
I will be building this B II. Will select one of the box options, most probably that fitted with the ventral turret.
Will be all the more enjoyable, as it was a flying hours freebie!

Have actually started spraying some HU78 about tonight. Need to finish a Victor before taking up too much room with this build.

Further progress will be dependent upon the Airfix Customer Care people. Started working on the starboard half of the fuselage, and realised that there were significant moulding issues. Photos and a request for a replacement have been sent:

Come on! A bit of plasticard and some filler, that'll buff right out. :Whistling:

Can't say I've seen that serious a fault on an Airfix kit before.

I have, on a two bob Hurricane I bought in 1962!.., seriously... it was just like that, eerily reminiscent in fact. :think:
