Looking really great!!

That's a lot to bite off in a build, keep up the wonderful work.

That's looking really, really nice Charles.
This should fly with ease, looks quite light but very strong.

Exceptionally clean build. The graphic to represent the bomb aimers compartment gives a quite convincing impression of depth. The red parts of the empennage will really set off the rest of the silver. Very very nice.
Best,
Robert

Hi to all entrants – sorry to miss the deadline (it will fly in August with a bit of luck), next time I will be more organised – this has been my first experience of entering an online model making competition, and it has been a very enjoyable one both from a learning perspective and from a friendly/helpful one – thanks to you all.
Best
Charles

Hi Charles,
Seems a lot of the multi's took a longer than expected build time.

Oh well.
Hey maybe we should take a vote for the july/August finished entries and September/October ones

ha ha

Hi RC everything – the Spitfire is the Guillows 403 kit purchased on line, the radio gear was also purchased online (Spektrum)
