Another silly take on what could have happened...
This was an experiment in flaking paint as well as another captured trials aircraft.

  1. The "paint-flaking" experiment worked fine I think.

  2. I'm pleased you like it Craig mate.

  3. Another entry to the "just-missed-it" category. Looks the part.
    Didn't get as far along as the Ascender, due to the end of hostilities.
    The Swedes did better with their Saab J-19.
    Real Buck Rogers stuff.
    I can just see this sitting at Freeman Field on Armed Forces Day, 1945.

  4. Like the flaking paint. Looks like a true fighter on its second tour.

  5. Great build and paintjob! Making overpainted national insignia look realistic is hard, but you nailed it.

  6. Very nice! Doesn't look quite natural in those stars and bars...

  7. Very nice. I've gotta find one of these

  8. George, Zoukei whatever has one, can't remember what scale, though.
