This is my entry. Not much this kit needs. Nice detail and nice fit. Going to build it gear up. I placed a magnet under the cockpit in order to not have to drill a hole for the stand. The magnet came from an old hard drive. Thanks for looking!! Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

Had to thin down the tires and landing gear to fit.

Didn't have RAF Dark Earth on hand but did have Military Brown by MM, which is one FS number away and a little lighter. Close enough.

Made my own dark green. Close enough for gov. work. Needs touching up. Gary S. XXXXV XXXX
