But lets start with the contents of the box:

I think it will be 627 markings.

Today I made some progress on the interior.

Some progress made yesterday.

All the interior parts are in it's place. Because of my skills in weathering, I decided not to.

Here are the pics.

Finaly it starts to look like a Mosquito.

 Fuselage is closed, wings glued together and waiting for the PE parts and the rudder is in its place.

Little progress made tonight.

The Merlins are assembled and the wings and horizontal stabilizers are glued together.

I also placed some PE pearts inside the wheelwells.

Hey there Racedees,

 

Looks like I am going to be building the same kit. Sorry, I wasn't trying to copy.

 

Why not? I would, this looks great so far!

 

Copying is a great compliment to people and it is why many post their WIPs here... So people can copy / get ideas.

Glued only one half of the engine cowlings and added some PE to it. The othe side of the cowling is to fix the other side. Have to place some prts inside before closing it up.
