Well just to prove that I hadn't given up, it's finished (well almost) all that left to do is a base for it, but as far as the plane is concerned it's finally done . Here's some pictures for all to enjoy

















As always and comments are welcome

Excellent job Allen, I have had one of these on the back burner for a long time and I know what it takes to build. You have made a great job of this

Really well done Allen.
It looks like youve made a great job of what looked like a dog of a kit
I hope your client is as appreciative as he should be

Really nice Allen, and looks much better in RN colours than RAF.

ps. at the Southerns show last week someone on the stand next to ours was building a 1/32 Bucc, a vacform kit

Considering the kit is a bit of a pig, yours has come out fantastic.
Will you be putting it on a carrier base?

It was that bad i had to put up with every few mins. It is on a basic carrier deck for the person that wanted it and its packed away ready to go.
