Thanks a lot gents.

A small addition to the kit that I felt added some detail is the prop stencil data. There is none supplied in the kit so I had to turn to aftermarket to source some. Kora make some excellent decals for this purpose. I was mainly interested in the data decals as the manufacturer logo is not something that Was on the sheet that I had.

They are a little stark and will need to be toned down a bit with some oils.

Image

The next item that needed attention was the gunsight. The kit resin sight is far too big and I felt this needed replacing. Brengun do a small set of RAF gun sights that feature resin and photo etch with a sheet of clear supplied.

Image

There are three types covered made of two part size each. The kit sight is placed next to them for size comparison.

Image

The Brengun sight is far better detailed and is much more appropriately sized.
