    Love it, sculpt and painting both top line.
    I hate it when people comment shame it isn't this or that scale but if anyone'e seen my facebook page it's shame it isn't a 1/48 US Navy Hellcat pilot. :whistle::D

    Wow! Ritchie John Haberfield served & flew from Indomitable before being shot down & captured.
    His story is tragic & one I was keen to honour when I first saw Rob’s Sculpt.

    Many Kiwis served in Fleet Air Arm, so was neat to remember their service.

    Hi Mike,
    Great execution again on the painting and you have definitely done homage to this piece. I'm sure my sister has the photograph's from this period I'll see if I can get a copy.
    cheers
