As you can (and should) be! :) And rest assured, I'm not actually going to bin anything. If I were really doing that, I'd have to sweep my shelves clean. :lol: Nah, as long as the final result makes me happy, everything's fine - and so far I keep stopping in front of my shelf to look at the finished models, and it always cheers me up, no matter if they're not as expertly built as some results shown here.

Finally completed!

Thank you for all your kind words. The kit is very nice, but to get a correct GR.7, you have to add a few things (curiously, the instructions drawings Revell supplies for the decal locations has all the missing details, as far as I can see - you can use it as reference for adding the missing bits).

I don't.

I love it!

Hard to believe this is what you can get out of the box. Well, what you can get out of the box - we'll see what I can do with this kit. :lol:

One thing that I find interesting about this aircraft is that it has the dull grey paint coat and the small roundels, but they are still in bold colours and certainly high-viz. Now, I don't know much about British aircraft, but in my mind I see the WWII ones with the ridiculously big red-and-blue circles, then the ones with the still-quite-large blue/white/red roundels, and finally the modern ones where the roundels are without the white again and have shrunk to dot size (compared to earlier eras) and the colours have lost nearly all saturation. That's why this one, with the small but vividly coloured insignia, is something that catches me by surprise visually.

Strange that Revell has all the missing details in the instruction sheet. However, to give Revell some credit: Such a result out of the box is certainly not shabby compared to what we sometimes work with in this scale!

Another masterpiece. I marvel at how clean your builds are - amazing. I just had a trawl back through them. The Fairey Rotodyne is a particular favourite! Bravo and thanks for showing us.

Beautiful build!
You clearly show how to turn a rather uninspiring camo scheme into a real eyecatcher! The decals certainly helped as much as your masterful way of carefully picking out just the right panel lines.
Love it!

Said it before and I'll say it again ... absolutely stunning. F_IV's social media critic would not doubt accuse you of posting photos of Trumpeter's 1/32 GR.7! :mrgreen:
