Thank you for looking and pleas say if some of it is wrong,Knowing me it could be.
  5. You are right about the pilot. I think it will be better with-out. Looking forward to seeing your PRXIX. Camera's in, which was fun and games. I did dry fit it all and closes OK. Now to carry on with the eduard stuff. Thanks you for looking and hope you are enjoying the build as I am.

  15. I used 2 airfix Hurricanes, and just filled in where needed. I dare say the parts I did not use will come in hady one day. Mind you I have got spare wings of a Spitfire, wonder if they would fit a Hurraicane fusalage and what it would look like ? I did put it in the work in progress-aircraft.
