    I made these two some time ago (spit is a wip) and thought I'd post some images.
    Templates used were building plans for actual models, I used wood and acrylic paint, size is about 12 resp. 20cm.
    (Inspired a picture in a TimeLife book about the Battle of Britain)

    You have made an excellent job of two very distinctive aeroplanes.

    There is the added satisfaction of having scratch built them yourself.

    Full marks to you and thanks for sharing.

    Blimey - they're excellent. That sort of modelling is so rare these days; I have a box full of vehicles I stratch-built in the 70s/80s. Today I can buy all of them as kits or resin models, but that doesn't have the same degree of fun in doing it yourself!
