    Looking good so far and your much further along than me now! I've only just finished painting the cockpit so hopefully I'll be onto basic assembly tomorrow. My excuse is that I'm working on two other 1/72 Spitfire Vc Trops and finishing off an HPM Atlas Cheetah D! Mike.

    I hope this is a (bad) joke....

    Hi Beard, I started one of these yesterday so here's what I've noticed so far: The trailing edge of the wings need some serious thinning down otherwise they'll be too thick. Why AZ/KP didn't engineer the new wing in the same way as the B wing is a mystery. The instructions have parts 8 and 9 labelled the wrong way round. The wing tips are a bit too pointy, although that's a mixture of being slightly too long and that the C wings are a bit narrower in chord at the outer end in comparison with the B wing parts. The engraving for the location of the oil cooler is a bit too far outboard. Seems slightly squint as well. Mike.

    That's what I did on the Vc although I did that first then painted the interior. I'll second Beard's warning about the wheel well inserts although I did use them on my build as they provide a bit of extra support at the root for the upper wing pieces. In my case I stuck them on then carefully sanded, checking the fit of the wing as I went. Mike.

    Nice start! I currently have Sword's Mk Vc on the bench. Based on what I've discovered so far, watch the fit of the radiator parts - 55 and 56. You'll need to do some sanding so part 10 fits over the top. Likewise, take care when working on the canopy as you also need to do some sanding to get a good fit with cockpit opening. Mike.
