Thanks Peter! It feels good to finally get this far in a build. Been a while. 

The next bit of masking was on the thorough side.

Then I sprayed the final camo colour.

The moment of truth.

I'm happy with the results. One tiny bit of paint lift and that's it.

I like what you are doing, painting the figures and even more your dio work, with all the plants and added details, Alan.

...but I can't find a policeman nor Indian chief or even a biker. I think they're fraud :D

Special device mark 7 has it’s colours  on. Once dry, I’ll give it a quick polish and then stencils. Time to print some decals me thinks:),,,
if you guys have any ideas for some nose-art  like “Kilroy was here” or “I’ll be back” or “ democracy is indispensable to socialism “ let me know.

My vote is for Slim Pickens in a cowboy hat.

Or has that been done to death? :D

Splendid looking Hurricane Carl, she would have deserved an own thread in all her beauty.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Rob!

I wasn't sure if I would actually finish it or I would've started a separate build thread on it. I still have a Sea Hurricane in the stash to do at some point.

Hmmm, it is going to be hanging under the F-84 wing. Over the shoulder kind of drop. But that remind me about “ dear John” and “ hi there”

One more member in the 'Bad hairdo and I nuke you to death club', Martin. I wonder, what your hairstyle looks like now :rofl:.

Have to say I was dubious about the decals for the shark mouth but they went on great and settled into the detail very nicely with a little Microsol. Not sure who prints them but I know Revell have used Cartograph for some. The Stars and Stripes on the tail also fitted nicely with a little trimming.

Weathering next....
