  1. Looks really great, Alistair @alistairfgauld
    She does not look like a simple kit at all, the folded wings for example do look nicely detailed.
    Well done.

  2. Excellent job on this, Alistair!
    Another winner!

  3. Liking very much it here too alistair!

  4. Another great model, Alistair (@alistairfgauld). Sea Hornets look really fast, even when they are just sitting on the ground. Isn't Nuln Oil cool? Not sure how I did without it before. :o)

  5. You have done a beautiful job on this. The Hornet is one of those aircraft that takes one’s breath away. If only there was a flying example today.

  6. Nice work, Alistair! The FAA scheme really suits the plane.

  7. Good job, Alastair, you’ve pulled off the Naval colour scheme beautifully. I know that there are some who find fault with this kit, but it still looks like a Sea Hornet. I also admire your subtle weathering techniques, but being colour blind I think a lot of it passes me by, that’s why I rarely weather any of my models. Definitely liked.

  8. Looks great - a subject not seen often! Well done.
