Ive just had a month away from "the bench" and lost momentum with this offering. I also lost the anti collision light and blade antenna. Ill call it a day until I find the pieces (they must be here somewhere).

My trouble is ,I set my own low standards and then fail to achieve them.(lol)

Ever heard the expression "your own worst critic?"

For a 1/72oob Airfix, your effort is nothing to sneeze at, and I know from whence I speak.

I like it Allan, we don't see so many Airfix Corsair jets... and these decals really do it justice, great choice !
