Like most of us I suspect, the majority of my aircraft builds are military, but my civilian collection is slowly growing:

Superb work as usual.

I hesitate to make some remarks but I shall. Its no reflection on your work.
On Hurricane Able Uncle; the oil tank at the port wing root was unpainted, ie plain aluminium. The wheel wells was unpainted aluminium, and inside of the doors were painted Royal Blue. And if you followed the decal makers instructions, the numbers under the wings will be the wrong way round. They need to be 108 degrees round from what the decal instructions say.

I bet you meant 180 degrees fred, ;-) sorry, couldn't resist. :)
Those are a lovely line up Mike, the Vanguard would be a sentimental favourite but its a treat to see some civillians so beautifully made.
Steve.

Thanks for the comments guys, including the corrections Fred. If I ever make another one, I'll bear those points in mind.
