My recently completed Tiffy built to represent an aircraft flown by Wing Commander Charles Green operating out of B.5 Advanced Landing Ground in Normandy, June 1944.
The aircraft is loaded with a mixed bag of fragmentation and 60lb HE heads that were sometimes carried.

  1. The detail in that engine!

  2. Beautiful work, all that you can expect in a big size model you deliver... abundant details, solid paint work and precise weathering. Wish I had a new room to build me one of those

  3. That's a stunning result, Mark. Congratulations!

  4. Incredible detail. Must have taken you a lot of hours to enjoy.

  5. Really, Really Nice! She looks like one could jump in and crank it up.

  6. Love the weathering - especially on the rockets. Looks great!

  7. Amazing result. You definitely made more than the most out of the opportunity this kit gave you. I'm not usually a fan of "opened up," but I've just declared an exception with this. Love it.

  8. Incredible.
    How many hours do you have in it?

  9. Thanks Bryan.
    I don't know how many hours I spent on the model, but I worked on it on and off over about 6 months I guess.

  10. What can I say Mark, a Masterpiece, Fantastic job.
