This will be my next build. The kit looks really nice with great detail. Not going to be one that gets done in 3-4 weeks either! LOL

Nice choice John,

Watch out for the MLG assembly, some very fine mouldings that become a nightmare if you mange to break something,

I loved building the original HK release and I'm sure you will love this one.

 

Regards. Andy

Nice books. I have all but the VW book, but I'll add that too, eventually. Of the SAM Combat Colours books, I have the first six volumes, but am chasing down the rest. I love 'em.

Thanks Andy. Looks like it has it's full quota of fiddly bits. I'm not too crazy about that but feel sure I can get it fixed up without too much cussing. :) About all I've done so far is to get some of the many little molding tabs removed.

They are good to have if you are building a Mossie. Great references. :)

John,

While I'm truly sad this isn't your 19th Corsair ( or whatever number we are on now), I'm pretty sure this is going to be a fun change of pace for you and be fun to watch.

So, 1-2 weeks, then? 😁

Looking forward to this build. Thanks for posting, John.
