It is a bit of subterfuge that I learned from a master whose Spitfire was absolutely RW apart from the one extra kill marking that the real one never carried.  :rolleyes:

I'll concede that point.  You have done well, my padawan!

Hang on a mo! wasnt that a Tempest II thats now in the SIG reserve collection?

The Wooksta!:
Indeed, it was a tempest, but I did something similar with a Spitfire 24 carrying a pair of red stars under the canopy.  I think this is what my learned colleague means:



It's not the first time I've pulled that subtle trick.

Martin H:
So I see ;D

My first thoughts were that the propeller in the Airfix kit looks a little bit “light weight” then I found one in my spares that just had that little bit more “something”.
The one on the left is the Airfix one, I have no idea what kit the other came from.

Hang on, there is no 'Airfix He112'

So even the build story is a whif, based as it it is in part on an imaginary kit?

Sneaky!
