Annoying Auster - part 2

 Here is the er, 'finished' Auster.  Sharp-eyed readers will note the absence of struts for wings etc.  These fell victim to my 'CBA'* approach to modelling and were replaced by more glue.  Bearing all that in mind, it looks quite reasonable.
 I opted for British markings - which the box describes as 'RAF'.  Of course, this is actually a machine of the Army Air Corps serving as an airborne observation post - a role in which the Auster served until the mid 1960s.  This is the role it will take as part of my Little Cold Wars project.

Turned out nice Tim- how will this influence the game? Extra shots with the spring mortar?

Cheers,

Pete.

For observed artillery fire you loose off a matchstick and if you don't like the fall of shot, you can try again - but the second shot is then the one which counts.

Thanks - given the start, the end was OK.
