Hi all

off work at the mo with a throat infection which has taken me voice away haha,but i have been able to get some things done on the ole Mossie.Its not a lot but things are slow here at the mo,dry fitting the Merlins to the wings what i can say is there a snug fit which is nice.The cockpit is comming along slowly but i should have the fuselage togather by the weekend with luck.

VERY nice start Fozzie!

 

I would definitely say the Mossie is my favorite all time Brit aircraft and most likely my second favorite of all time............first being the F7F; gotta love those twins........

 

I just picked up one of Revell's older 1/32 Mossies and cant wait to get started........your build is making me want to start it now!

 

Keep the pics comin!

 

Cheers,

Brian

You are right about taking your time...I shall savor this one like a gourmet meal--shouldn't be too hard with what 253 separate steps? Of course, the agonizing has begun over which version to make. But at least I already have my Eduard seat harnesses.

 

I like the Pacific theater so I was immediately attracted to the RAAF scheme...but the silver Mossie has never really wowed me. I like camouflage, so I'm more likely to do the Operation Jericho aircraft.

 

Some decals for 418 RCAF would be nice....

 

Regards,

 

Tim W.
