This aircraft is looking like a real classic add-on, well done. I know this is usually a point of personal taste, but will there be any wear and tear on the VC's surfaces, or are we looking at models that have come straight from the factory?

Welcome Nick, and thanks for your kind commends!
Yes, there's some weathering in the cockpit, not overly much though.
Interestingly those who flew the birds back then are a bit confused about our FS aging "fashions".
They say there was always time to fix some little scratches.

It's interesting that you say that about weathering. I know that in the U.S. Navy there were always people around to touch up scratches. Mostly because of corrosion resistance.
That's why I take issue with WWII Navy planes showing all kinds of wear and tear. It never happened. The leading Chief would be on someones tail for letting his airplanes not looking ship-shape.
Now the Marine division of the Navy was a different story. They were on land and nobody gave a damn.
Just love the movie.

Here's the most current VC shots.
You'll be able to choose clean or weathered cockpit textures.

Either that new plane smell or a well tuned broken-in mean machine :? never was good at those kind of decisions. It is much appreciated to have that choice, thank you. The pics look absolutely breath taking. I need to get back to studying it's manual.

Thanks for the new pics,
