Having had this one in the stash since it was released a couple of years ago. What better time to get it on the go. I'm thinking I will finish it in the markings of No. 899 NAS aboard HMS Eagle.

Is that XP924? Was hoping to throw this kit in instead of the Swordfish as that looks too complicated...

Hey Scott... Stop holding up traffic driving that truck around the city and show some pictures... :grin: Glad to see another one of these in the GB. I know you have been itching to build this one for a while now.

Hi all sorry I have not been around in a while. I have just had no desire to get this model done, as the deadline is looming I figured I better get my butt in gear :lol: just a couple for now. Maybe some more tomorrow.

Hi all i trust that you have all had a Merry Christmas and that Father Christmas has delivered lots of kits to you all :lol:
Anyway. since i have been neglecting this build for to long i thought i better knuckle down and get on with it with the deadline two days away. After a 7 hour shift at the table i think I'm in a position to be able to start applying some decals.
