Fit is great, cockpit photos to follow ! Westland at the time of the war were a very small company, which unfortunately didn't aid in the testing, the development and the production of the Whirlwind which is why it wasn't more than it should have been. Westland also didn't use primer on their aircraft either, so after a load of low level sorties over the salty English channel the aeroplanes began to chip badly and look well used and frankly f$cked !

Finally finished the chipping took ages due to the harness of the Mr.Color Paints next stage is to seal it in with a gloss coat then add the decals
