Here is my go at a 1/72 Airfix de Havilland Vampire T.11 and Xtrakit's FB.5.  I enjoyed building both the only problems were the air intakes for the Airfix T.11 and the booms on the FB.5.  Also the FB.5 kit decals are not the best.  I even liked using the Alclad paint which was my second time I have used it.

Very nice looking Vampires and dynamic looking display! Good pictures, from every angle.

I wondered what was the problem with the booms? The booms on Airfix were brilliantly done as they aligned between the wings and there were no awkward seams. I consider acquiring Xtrakits Vampire to make company to my Airfix T.11 and Revell and Heller Mk 5:

Thanks Thatmas.  The Xtrakit's FB.5 has great detail and the problem with the booms was that I couldn't get a flush fit due to a few gaps but that was easily overcome by using a few bits of plasticard as shims to fill the gaps.  You are right about the Airfix booms and you have some very nice Vampires in your collection.
