Well that has really turned a sow's ear into a silk purse. What a difference a nose and spinner makes. Excellent result.

A really nice job on that. I'd bought the nose & had the kit when all the new mold Defiants, Special Hobby & Airfix showed up, having seen this, I can find a use for it after all in a whif I was going to use a SH one for.

Cracking build Mr Zee - nice work on the conversion.

I have this kit and the resin nose in the stash along with the one for the battle - I really must get to it.

Excellent rhinoplasty on that old bird. I have thought once or twice about taking my Defiant down from its ceiling perch and trying to rectify that nose issue.
