Airfix 1/72 Whirlwind - pilot and nacelles

Have been playing with a Revell pilot, from their 1/72 Pilots and Ground Crew figure set.
Quite nice figure, though his bottom half is quite large, so will need some bum surgery.

Going to vac my own canopy, so the kit one has had the frames sanded off, and then polished up again. The props and spinners were assembled then, the blades chopped off,  ready for the prop blurs...

Now I'm sure the Airfix exhausts are in the wrong place, they are molded on the naccele centre lines..
 Yet to me they look like they are higher than the centre line and slope down at the rear.
So off they'll come and I'll graft on something...
