Thanks guys for all your wonderful comments, they are much appreciated.

The CSM FK.8 is now done and dusted, the rigging was quite complex and took a little longer than expected, all in all the rigging went very well despite the small gap between the wings. I ended up using just about all of the PE that was supplied with the kit, overall it is an excellent kit which makes up to be a very nice looking model, a full build log can be found on my website.
