 I can't think of anything left to do so I'll call them finished.
 There are approximations , assumptions and omissions  but as Lou says its all about satisfaction.

 The Mk IV is painted to represent an aircraft of 295 Squadron in 1945.  8Z / B "Glorious Beer"is the nose art.

 The Mk I is painted to represent an aircraft from 214 Squadron flown by an Australian pilot Frank Griggs. The crew were all NCO's and crashed on landing after sustaining heavy damage due to
 night fighter attacks . All the crew were awarded DFM's.


 Cheers

Outstanding at 1/144 scale. Great addition to the 2017 yearbook poster.

 Thank you Paul and Lou.

 I might try another 1/144 "set" next year. I might put a limit on the number of engines though.

 I picked up some vac form canopies etc.., at the model show I put some models in.
 They're 1/72 . I managed to get a set for a Whitley and a Blenheim.

 See what 2018 brings.

 Cheers

 Gordon
