I am classing this one as finished. I was originally planning on putting on the antenna wires but then I could not find any images of 457 SQN Spitfires with them so I canned that idea. This is not one of my good builds as the decals have just not gone on properly and I have had some extensive silvering, this is most likely me and not the decals themselves. I did a bit of weathering with silver paint but it didn't work out as good as the Corsair I. :-(

Looks great to me buddy. I know how you feel with the decals. I nearly just ruined my AVG P-40b with it's original decals, still hoping to save it though.
I think you'd be pretty safe with an aerial wire from tail to mast, but that's just me.
