  1. Right, time to tackle this little beasty! I have been waiting for someone else to post up a build thread, so I could learn from them, as I'm sure there are gremlins hiding in this limited run kit. This one started well, but has stalled - So picking up the batton. First step, lets open the box and see what's inside - Supermarine S5 1/48 from MikroMir by Mike, on Flickr Four sprues of quite detailed plastic.

Supermarine S5 by Mike, on Flickr Instructions - Supermarine S5 by Mike, on Flickr What do Micro-Mir think the pilot sits on? I struggled to find reference for the S5 cockpit, although there is stuff out there on the S6 and varients. There is room for improvement here, although I'll make my mind up how far to go after I've dry fitted the fuselage halves together. It's a pretty small opening to get into so not sure how much will be seen. Supermarine S5 by Mike, on Flickr Other issues I need to address are that they supply a lovely little Napier Lion power plant, but I am fairly certain this can only be built into the kit with the cowlings off. I think in real life the cowling may even have been part of the rocker cover on the cylinder heads.. And beaching dollies would be amazing, but we'll see how confident I am in my scratch building abilities on that front. N220, S.5, Hanger F, RAF Calshot, 1927 by Mike, on Flickr
