Here's one from me too.  It is scratchbuilt in 1/144 and is in the markings of Lionel Rees from 32 Sqn.

William, you are a true master. In 1/32 this model would be a winner, in 1/48 or 1/72 amazing. In 1/144 it is absolutely mind boggling.
Congrats again.
Sandy
PS great photography - and especially the correct date-stamped old penny coin!

I agree with Macsporran.
I would struggle to make a 1/48 look better than this.

Thanks everyone!  I really appreciate the kind words.  It was 8 months of hard slog, but I'm glad I persevered with it.
