I've no objections, I suppose it gives me even more time to find more resin to pack into this monster, and to buy some white metal undercarriage legs to take the weight.

Regards Rob..

I don't mind moving, means I can pay more attention to the V bomber group build.

I never normally build WW2 stuff but I've got a real soft spot for the mossie so count me in!
I'm going to ba a pain though and ask what the best 1/48 kit would be for an OOB build? I know that's going to be a very subjective question BUT I'm not fussy about the mark too much I would just like the 'best' all round kit, that won't break the bank! Not too much to ask right....

Hi Phil and welcome

I would say Tamiya is your best bet in 1/48 but Revell did bring one out and that did get good reviews ,
so you pay your money and make your choice.

I've got a pair of dear old Airfix 1/72s and some markings for 23 Squadron NF.II and FB.VI in both Malta and Italy... I feel a little return to my youth coming on!

Thanks,
Always safe to assume Tamiya is good, but then I've got their SHAR...
Got plenty of time to keep my eyes open for a good deal!

The Tamiya kit is the way to go in 1:48 and 1:72. The only problem with the Tamiya kit is that the tailfin and rudder is about 3 mms too tall in 1:48. It is hard work trying to fix, and is not something that immediately jumps out at you. The only benefit of the Revell kit that I can see is that the flaps are separate if you're inclined to drop them, and that has shape errors of it's own: The bulbuous spinners really jump out, and the aircraft sits too low on the undercarriage, and to compensate, Revell made the wheels too big. If Revell had made a decent stab at a two-stage Merlin variant instead of going head-to-head with Tamiya, then that would have been a useful source for engines, but as it is now, it really is no better than the Tamiya kit - and a poorer representation of the Mossie.

Got the Tamiya 48th kit today so even though I was set with the Revell one, this one's better
