    Thanks Joseph.

    The Aires set is very detailed but very brittle, especially the wheel well doors, which needed some swearing until the glue set.
    The detail in the wheel wells is really good so is the instrument cluster.

    Quite enjoyed it actually.

    Thanks louis,

    I think it looks great in 58 Sqn. markings, I like the owl, it used to be called the night sqn.

    I hope you are well Louis, I have been sick for the last three weeks, just can't get rid of my flu.

    The thought of the expo getting closer is making me feel better.
