  1. I liked it Trachsel,very nice!

  2. Finishing a Grand Phoenix kit is an accomplishment by itself; coming up with such excellent result is something one rarely sees.
    Congratulations, Trachsel!
    Simply wonderful!

  3. Fine looking Firefly - well done!

  4. Excellent work, Trachsel. Fireflies are always interesting.

  5. Trachsel,

    You have brought out the best in this kit. Correcting the spinner in this kit is a must, along with the canopies. The Firefly was made for flying over water long distances and the British made sure it had a navigation aide ergo a navigator. Which, made the naval fighter even more complicated. It still carries the lines of what one would see in a Spitfire with the compound curves. A fine looking lady.

    Two thumbs up.

  6. Excellent result, Trachsel @Matra

    This is not an aircraft that is often seen and you have done a great job.
