That looks a superb job Phil can I ask how much time you have in that build? and how long on average it would take to complete a build like that?

cheers bud

youve put all that effort into building a scale replica of a once feared monster of the british skies and you are undecided if its worth it. 2 words m8 FIT IT !!!

it would finish it off just nicely i reckon, unless of course the price far out ways the benefits.

Looked at the website, thems BIG warbirds! too big for me.
I'm looking at the Kyosho Hein 56" wingspan (check out thr Kyosho website)
I quite fancied the FW190-but getting a bit common in Redcar Laughing

OMG! A Tuskegee P51B in the right colours. Jeez I've wanted one of them for years!!! The only 'colored' fighter outfit in WW2, had some of the finest pilots of WW2 in their ranks, hard as nails black lads-with a point to prove.
