Thanks David!

Looking forward to seeing the F.2 - but no rush.

Following a short break building elsewhere I have got back to my Lightning builds, after finishing the paintwork I then applied the decals hoping to complete the F.1a model this weekend but I dropped a clanger in unknowingly moving one of the nose roundel/flash decals, of course I did not notice this until the decal had dried so the nose now needed to be rubbed down and re-primed ready for a new paint finish and new decals.

The decals have been ordered from Hannants and should be with me later this week but the model will not now be finished until next weekend so to fill in the time I will prepare the Airfix model for conversion into the P.1b XA847 to pass the time.

Yes but at least it isn't a major disaster- the nose will be repainted by the time the new decals get here and that just leaves the canopy, undercarriage, missiles and a few odds and ends to finish it off.
