  1. Well, it's Battle of Britain GB time at last, and here is my first contribution. I chose the earlier Revell/Hasegawa version over the newer Revell Mk II because I think the fuselage shape is better, and I have added the following "extras" to help things along. Barracuda wing correction set, because although Revell took the trouble to re-tool the wings, the ailerons still look like metal covered ones to me, and I might as well use Roy's radiator and oil cooler while I'm at it. Also from Barracuda, the cockpit parts specific to the Mk 1, including the door but not the seat, as this appears to me to be the plastic variety and mine will be the metal version and a set of five spoke wheels. I bought a spare Sprue F from the Tamiya Mk IX as, although there are obvious differences to the fit, I think the basic cockpit structure remained the same for the Merlin engined marks, and this will give me, amongst other things, the horizontal frame on which many items sit, and I will be able to achieve a proper "floorless" look. A Yahu instrument panel, which although designed for the new Revell Mk II will be near enough identical to a Mk 1. I will be using the HGW early Sutton Harness and also some of their positive rivets for the rear fuselage, these will be ordered later in the build. I will be attempting to scratch build the landing light control, very prominent on the Mk 1, the airscrew pitch control and the hight and speed computer which occupied a space on the upper starboard cockpit wall where the remote contacter was situated on later models. (no IFF on this one ) I am also armed with Edgar's comprehensive list of Mk 1 and Mk V cockpit differences, and of course I have access to the "all the Spitfire questions " threads, so how could I possibly go wrong? Just watch me. The sharp eyed amongst you will see that I have already started to take the major airframe parts off the sprues. I will start with the major surgery on the wings first so that if I get that wrong I can throw the whole thing away lol. Thanks for looking, regards John
