Now thats a bit special, not something you see every day. It's going to be a stunner.

Good luck with Op smuggle Mustang :-)

I wouldn't rule out it landing at your house mate at this stage. You could pick up the import duty bill as well that way (: bargain.

Thanks for giving me the idea.

Yeah why not. Sound like a real good plan Nick, quite fancy a bash at one of these myself ;-)

Still at it. Finished the rear bulkhead and compressed air/oxygen cylinders. Just wiring and plumbing to do now. Oh yeah and then the other zero :)

Utterly incredible build.....Really shows up the Zero's lightweight construction doesn't it. :coolio:

Just out of interest, how is the arrestor hook attached.....There's so little structure back there it looks like the tail would be ripped off on landing, but obviously not? :shrug:

That looks nice. I'm thinking of going for this ;-

Shame it's not a Spitfire XI or XIV

Yes I've looked at these, very nice indeed, better detailed than the Hiro, but at twice the scale you would expect it to be in fairness.

Look forward to seeing you build that then.

Yes I wondered about that too. It's just an open box stepped into the keel on the kit, not accurate I suspect for the reasons you state.

Just finishing off tonight. I'm debating wether to fit the top panels on the wings at the moment, they are one piece and just look far too uniform, I may elect to go for individual rib caps and stringers I think.
