Hateful.  I detest the nazi allies and collaborators with a passion you can barely dream of.

As do I. So I'm probably showing my ignorance here; was it only vichy (spit) aircraft that had this nose design? If so, it's gone, ASAP!

I use the classics, either brake fluid or caustic soda solution.

- 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.

I've been meaning to pick up some Dettol, but brake fluid was within reach, and I wanted that treasonous crap off there right quick.

She's got legs. Still some work to do on fiddly stuff, and slinging that torpedo underneath (thanks Chris!). There was another paint disaster, but I don't think it could be one of my builds unless that happens.  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:

Is that the old FROG kit?

It looks wonderful, and wholly plausible too.  :thumbsup:

Interesting Build from an old kit! And I appreciate your keyboard, looks hellish!

Yep! You'll notice that the Vichy (spit) markings on the cowling have been stripped, I didn't know anything about them until Wooksta commented, and I DO NOT WANT THEM!
