Thanks guys. The Mustang actually came out better than I expected although it does seem to be a little wonky with the front passenger side and the rear drivers side wheels being off the ground slightly.

Steve McQueen did drive a 2+2 fastback in Bullit but it was a '68 390 GT.
Interestingly, it seems that the second Mustang used in the film (the one used in the iconic chase scene) has possibly been found in Mexico. It hasn't been verified yet but it vanished after production. The other one was kept in good condition and sold later to private collectors.

Airfix 1/72 BAe Sea Harrier FA2 (A50017) Restoration
At the start of my portfolio you may have seen my original attempt at this aircraft. It was seen in a messy state and without decals. Well, I have now restored it to look better and have added the decals. Seen here as a representation of No 800 Naval Air Squadron, Fleet Air Arm, RNAS Yeovilton, Somerset, England (1997).

Revell 1/72 De Havilland Vampire FB.5 (03993)
Here's my take on the Revell DH Vampire FB.5. Unfortunately, due to an incident with the landing gear, this has been built gear up. Seen as a representation of No 112 Squadron, RAF Fassberg, Germany 1952.
