  1. Well so far from the book: Pegasus Left-hand tractor prop 12'6"diameter Hercules Left-hand tractor prop 12'6"diameter Merlin Right-hand tractor prop 12'9"diameter Twin Wasp Right-hand tractor Curtiss electric 12'3"diameter
  2. This kit has been built in InterceptorsGB, with nothing else appropriate remaing in my stash.
  3. Looking at the spruemap for the Revell Merlin Wellington, It's got 6 unused props (4 different engines?), and some unused engine parts and cowlings. And spare stabiliser. I'll have to open the kit, and consult the book, to see just what's for which versions.

  9. Completed. Tomorrow, I'll take some comparison photos with those Academy Fw190D9s.
  10. Undercarriage, and cannons fitted. And completed. Tomorrow, I'll take some photos with the Revell Fw190A.
