No, I didn't buy it - it was given to me. It's not my usual fare, but why not? It will do something to get me into the present century.

The decals refused to part from the backing paper even after days of soaking, so I had to resort to making my own. Fortunately, there were few.

A modern jet makes a change from your usual fare for sure, Vacant, but why not indeed. It looks excellent and you've done a great job making the markings. Plus you got the kit for nowt - warms my Yorkshireman's heart, that does :grin:

Very nicely done Vacant, and as ever very nicely portrayed as well!

Your tube of filler is looking at you forlornly going "Why have you abandoned me?" :sad:

Fear not. I will be back to using filler long before it goes dry.
