Thanks Casper! Morrigans photo is a cracker, so clear and showing all that detail. The only drawback now is that I want to do another kit :angry-banghead:
The "K" is appreciated, thank you Paul. Here is a little more to more or less complete this entry! I may go back to the wheel well and see if I can improve on the basic mod I have added there? I will have to be in the right frame of mind to do something different but as there is still plenty of time it may well happen. In the meantime the Messerschmitt will be tackled, so look out for entry number two!!!

As can be seen the aerial wire has been added, just a bit of stretched sprue painted black and a small base board for the model to sit on...

There it is entry number one done!!!
Cheers, Steve...

Don't you dare Jonathan !!!!! :) :) :)

With doing a lot of these smaller kits, it then actually helps with doing your own proper ones, also there are so many tips that you can pick up :) :) :)

Thanks a lot everyone, I have really enjoyed constructing this kit and have now got the urge to do more!!This makes a pleasant change from sawing and sanding little sticks of wood.
No doubt the SOTS will be revisited before long but, the detail that comes with a plastic kit is quite remarkable and in such a small scale. I have a couple of 1:24 scale kits to have a go at some time in the future, doing these smaller kits may just nudge me towards doing some more to those.
All the best, Steve..
