Peter - really was an amazing build and a beautiful Mossie at the end.  LOVE the attention to detail in the cockpit esp.  The yellow wiring conduit really caught my eye among other things.  I also had no idea how many removable panels there are on this kit.  WOW.  Agree with Kev - your photo skills match your modeling skills - really shows off your work nicely.

 

Hey. How about a picture of her all buttoned up?  Chris

Hi Chris

Thank you for the humbling comments- so very much appreciated. As far as buttoning everything up, it's all there but I'm a chicken at heart as I built the Mossie with every intention of leaving the panels off. While they do fit (I used the clear panels as painting masks). things get very tight around some of the coolant pipes and a good deal are Alclad, unsealed (I never seal Alclad or AK Metals) and I know I will wind up scratching them. Even with the Owl I'm working on now, I checked off all the panels I am going to have open - just makes it a bit easier for me down the road.

Peter

Absolutely beautiful Peter!!  Just stunning.  The Mossie keeps floating up to the top of my "really have to build this" pile (with our BOAC markings).  Great job!!
