15th December 1943: very smart and realistic model
15 Wed. Very cold, very dull, windy. Did not go out. Got the boy next door to get some sausage meat from the butchers. Gave Anthony's aero a final coat of silver dope and decorated it with pale blue. Affixed the red, white & blue roundels which finishes a very smart and realistic model; not unlike the de Havilland Mosquito.
