Well a good friend of mine has asked me to build this amazing kit. So I am venturing out of my comy 1:48th zone and going large! There are a few aftermarket additions, namley the Eduard Interior PE, HG Fabric seatbely and Yahu instrument panel.

I ambuliding MN666 'CG' which lead one of the first rocket attacks on the beach head on the 6th June 1944. This I hope is going to be a bit special, so I am going to take my time with this one!

So I have started after giving everything a good warm wash. It is going together beautifully!

Good luck with the Typhoon.

I have one stashed away but tbh I'm a bit scared of it. Bit more practice first I think, building the Roden Sea Gladiator then maybe the Has. Typhoon in 1/48 or maybe a Seafire (It's all just avoidance)...

Think I'll just watch this one for a bit...

Seems you've got off to a fine start with this one Richard and an interesting selection of goodies to add into the mix.

Gloss primer on ready for the metal coat, black post shaded firewall completed and sealed with a matt coat. Had a bash at the seat aswell, more detail on the leather to be done yet, but pleased with how its gone so far. 24hr wait for everything to dry fully now.
