Well this one's had more lives than some cats. Correct brigade decal applied over the mistake, and engine deck reworked as suggested. I hope the pics look ok on your screen...

Thanks for looking in. Cheers, Ralph.

To use a polite version of a British saying, "That's the poodles privates". I love the finish, the weathering is superb. What's next?

I like the corrections you've made. Though, to me the model itself was well executed before. I also like your base.
Good work and nice addition to the GB

Yours,
Shon
