:D, Great job Andrew and you did beat phantom to the post. It looks great mate, woof. Were the decals old? that USAF on the starboard wing looks as if it's pretty old by the silvering. Still a great job and I really like the BMF. Fantastic model there.

:cheers:,

Ross.

Cheers Guys,

They were the original kit decals Ross. They went down well but have since discoloured a bit on the Alclad. I'm in two minds whether to put some Future on it and see if it disappears, or just leave it?

Regards

Andrew :cop:

Nice Barney.

I'd build one of those if I could find one that I wouldn't have to sell a kidney to afford...

Bashace: The Pitts S2C is the 1/32 scale resin prototype kit produced by AirShowModels.com about 7-8 years ago. It was built so as to produce the construction manual for the kit. Unfortunately the company has disappeared.

The camera was the old I am a spammer, please report this post. Coolpix 990 set for apperature priority and macro.

This along with others in this category are on my website http://www.barneysairforce.com

:D, Great work on all those builds gentlemen. But MikeC, isn't the camera supposed to be on the tripod and not the model (tongue in cheek).

Ah! Now, that's the beauty of this set up! It's dual-purpose, see? A few times I found myself needing a tripod for me camera to take pics with the fam. Got lots to choose from now. :rofl:

eBay, my friend. eBay.... About $1 a pop, including P&H.

Although... I've also just bought Italeri Display Stand. One of my Rafales will be on that.
