Armstrong Whitworth FK.8. Pegasus 1/72

My apologies for the changing previous post. I have been working out how to post images correctly on the site. I have a solution that works for me now so on with the pictures! 
This is my current build. A nice little kit from Pegasus. I have scratch built the entire interior using Windsock Datafile reference and build articles of the Copper state models. Here is a link to my build on Hyperscale:

That is a very good looking F.K.8! I've built CSM's version in 1/48 scale and just from the pictures you could absolutely pass it off as a bigger scale model.

I agree with Fredrik, it looks much bigger (and better!) than a 1/72 Pegasus kit. Bravo Tim - I'm so glad you've joined us here!

Lovely piece of work so far Tim -Look forward to seeing the finished article

Like most of us I've got a couple of Pegasus kits in the stash and to see one brought up to this standard is very inspiring (Thanks for the thread link which covers the journey in more detail)

Cheers

Tim,

Very nice to see an oldie get the treatment it deserves.  I bought a couple of these when they were first released.  I am ashamed to say they are both still in their boxes.  I think I might give one a go here soon.  Thanks for posting.
