She looks gorgeous, 'mog, bravo!

She does indeed. And that teeny-tiny canopy is truly impressive! Magnifying glass on standby  :smiley:

Hi all

The decals finally arrived and after a final push on the rigging its finished.

As I said before not the big reveal I usually do, but i am really happy about the way this one has turned out.

This kit is really showing its age but with a bit of patience and filler can be made into quit an acceptable model, I have the new tool version of this aircraft which is far superior, but that is reserved for another less colourful project.

As always all comments and criticisms gratefully accepted..........

Thanks for looking.

The colors and contrast are just great! The rigging looks good, too.

I didn't realize that plane was so small.

Oh, that is pretty! Lovely paintwork ... and a tiger on his tail  :D

And great registration! According to Golden Years of Aviation, the RW G-ADHD was to be a DH.85 Leopard Moth (c/n 7106) which was never completed. Now we known where that reg was transferred to  :smiley:

Agreed, very well conceived, and executed.   :smiley:
Must admit, when I saw the registration, my first thought was of the 'medical condition' . . .

Beautiful work 'mog, she looks fantastic!

I wonder if I can convince anyone into doing it with the new kit? And the 1/48... :icon_punal:
