Congratulations, Guy, on finally finishing it. It looks superb, and one can't tell that you haven't used an airbrush in 10 years based on how nice the paintwork came out. It's hard to believe those invasion stripes are hand-painted, they look so good. And great job on masking that canopy. I purchased an Eduard mask set when I built my Italeri Stirling, for I surely would have messed things up greatly if I tried to cut my own!

A very fitting tribute to your father. Well done!

Cheers,

Mark

Thank you Mark, the effort has been worth it. Horsa, chalk number 161 next I think. :D
