Peter, your looks great. Where did you get it from?
Contact Adam at Warbirdpilots.com-they are fairly light and nicely detailed for the price.
The absolute BEST figures I have seen come from Wilson at Tailoredpilots.com in the UK, but they are about 3 times the price of Warbirdpilots...

Thanks Peter, very nice work. I am fitting mine out atm. The flap mechanism on one wing is very sloppy before it has even flown. Anyone else encounter this?

YES-
I have 2 of them, and they are both sloppy. And they get more so after they get some flights on them. Doesn't seem to be a problem so far, but seems odd to me given the cost of the kit. I think CARF could do better.

Hey Mike, it seems to me that the holes in the hinge plates are too big. Will try my fix to sort that and see how much difference it makes. Annoying that we have to do this. My stabs were badly misaligned too.... I sorted that out easily enough but you would think it would be easy enough to hug that up correctly.

I have tried umpteen different cocktails but for me Tamiya acrylics with 50 % water and 10% dish soap ( soap breaks the surface tension) works very well.
The dirtier I want the plane to be, the more flat the clear coat is under the wash (the wash grabs more to a flatter surface).
