I'm immediately drawn to your subtle underwing rib shading Des. Nicely done!

Cheers,

Chris

Simply gorgeous, Des.  Truly an inspirational build.  I hope to be joining you here soon with one of my own (as soon as Rowan releases the Barker sheet).
Cheers,
Bud

  Des,
Such an outstanding and inspirational project my old friend. This beauty is making it harder and hander to resist buying a couple ( Early / Late ).
Highest Regards,

Des & Dave, what a beautiful pair of Snipes!  Funny thing is, I never really cared much for the Snipe until you guys opened my eyes with your very fne examples. :D  Now I can't wait to see more Snipes right here, and I've got one in the stash! ;)

Regards,

Bob

Man, what a beauty, Dave.  I had no interest in doing a silver Snipe until I saw yours.

I am still in awe of these two builds! I REALLY Love the 56 squadron bird, so colorful. The detailing in both is fantastic. What a Pair Indeed!

Well even though everyone has already seen it it's probably the most appropriate place for it to be.

Modelmaker. I really like the Wash from the bottom and the color of the upper area. Was he really that much chocolate?
