Excellent job Ken; not my scale but they do look like nice little kits and I'm with you all the way on the lumps and bumps issue with kits. Life is too short sometimes

Those models look fine to me Celt, no matter what the scale. As for the lumps, bumps and other bits.... what are we making models for. I am like you and have a wife in poor health so I make models as a form of distraction from stress and problems. If other people do not like what I do I care not: I assume that you are the same. Keep slapping on the paint with a hairy stick as you are doing a very good job!

This model has been lurking for awhile now but I finished it at last.Its an old Smer kit stuck on a stand even though it has it's undercarriage down.The stand makes it easier to sit on my narrow shelf.

Love the Lightning and Spitfire Ken; very nice work on both.
I hope all goes well with your wife's care and that you are soon able to make time to get back to your bench

I see no butchery of kits here, Ken, only some excellent builds. Hope all goes well for your wife.
