Fantastic Avenger Neil, great paint finish and weathering, she looks well used and abused and the Kiwi markings always look good, I love it!

Not good news about the Ventura decals, I hope that's an isolated case...

Great result despite the decals.

Very nice work. You might consider drilling out the exhausts, which should have a very thin wall (look at your car).

Ready for take-off! Right nice, Neil- the term "artistry" surely befits it. Nice bomb load, too.

Cheers!
