I took these with my phone so if their crap images I'm sorry and I'll replace them on the weekend when I can.

They look great Andrew. That's a kick in the pills with the 3 Sqn canopy though. Still, very nicely done. :thumbsup:

Thanks Mike. Thanks again guys for the kind words. Here's the 2OCU 'Marksmen' Sabre with some colour;

I really think this is going to be a nice looking jet when done with the silver, black and yellow

Here's some black on yellow. Unfortunately, I won't get this finished by tomorrow night as I expected but more than likely will be finished by Sunday night. Then it's onto the 77 Sqn bird...........

Four beautiful sisters. How about a few more 'family portraits'?

Great work, Andrew. You did these kits proud.

Cheers, mate! :cheers:

Hi Mike,

I've just handed three of them over to their owner. I still have one more to finish which will be a 77 Squadron sword which has green and white markings but as far as I know wasn't used in an aerobatic team. It'll look like the one in the link attached;

Thanks Mike. They're not the easiest of builds but I enjoyed doing them.
