As sneak peaked in the last part of my Shack build, the mighty Sea Vixen was my next build from Airfix.

 

I have history with the real Sea Vixen, I worked on one during my time at Dunsfold - speaking of which here she is..

The kit itself is very well molded, the fit is very good - though there's been a few issues, more on those later in the blog entry..

Flaps on the the underside need some fettling (and will need some filling later)

Over 40 grams of ballast have been added forward of the nose wheel

Alas more railway commissions beckon, so that's it for now..
