Chris;  May I support Pellson's comments on your situation, and wish you both well in your ongoing struggles with polystyrene

Here's a couple of shots of the real world KP Seafire MK IB finished as an aircraft of 801 NAS, HMS Furious, Home Fleet, flown by Sub/Lt Peter Hutton, March 1943. Thoroughly enjoyable build even if I did conspire to screw it in a couple of places because of not reading the instructions  :banghead:

Very nicely done Chris.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

That bad boy is clean, I love it.....   one like this but not nearly as good was one of my first airplane models as a child. Seeing this conjurs up nice memories..   I dig the exhaust.  :mellow:

Good job Chris.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks lads.

As said it's a very nice kit with excellent fit and quite a few fiddly very small bits. Their new tool Tempest on the other hand whilst being a very nice kit with great fit is slightly simpler when it comes to the small, fiddly pieces front, which suits me very well  :thumbsup:

Progress on all fronts  :thumbsup:

However I had one of those "moments" with the Moonbat. I managed to get her painted, although I'm not convinced the Xtracolour used has fully dried even after 4 days  :unsure:, and had decided I could live with the canopy/fuselage join. Anyway after 3 days of looking at it and going "it's alright" I decided it wasn't. So I've spent most of my modelling time  this weekend working on it. I think it's almost there now and yes I do feel better inside for doing it  :rolleyes:

I function similarly. If it doesn’t feel 100%, it will bug me to no end, so for my own long term sanity, I need to redo it, regardless of cost/effort involved  :rolleyes:

If you feel good, then it's worth the effort, Chris!
