HI John

Great to see you off and running with a Mossie. The front office and bulkheads look dead on. I struggled for a long time on my Mossie with trying to get the interior cockpit color correct and yours seem to be right on the money. What paint and mix did you use?

Nothing like the Mossie gear for sure. Tamiya did a nice job on theirs but the same can be said about trying to get all the small braces in the right way was a lot harder then I thought and of course on the first few tries, I managed to get them on backwards.

Looking good

Keep 'em comin

Peter

Thanks Peter. The interior color is just Model Master RAF Interior Grey/Green with a wash of Tamiya acrylic black.

Yep, I had some parts on backwards too. LOL I'll be glad to have all the gear work finished so I can get on with the rest. I plan to have the engines closed up so there won't be any high cuss-factor moments there. :)

Be careful of the toes that you step on today for they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow.

Good job on the landing gear!

Not looking forward to trying that myself in the future.

Great results on the landing gear John.

I think we all got at least part in upside down or backwards while building them.

Thanks. I used some Alclad dark aluminum further darkened with a little black to get it slightly darker. Then applied a wash of Tamiya acrylic black. :coolio:
