My models are not in the same league as some of the incredible builds on this forum. However, in my view, one of the principal obstacles to plastic modelling is the amount of time and effort it requires. That is one reason why I used the undocumented quick build option for this model. That is, I built it in flying mode with wheels up, crew hatch and weapons bays closed, and with homemade transparent discs instead of propeller blades. That is either the crime of the century or a deft move, depending on your viewpoint.

Nice to see the Mossie in different colours.


Well done.

I fail to see where your comment "not in the same league as other builds on this forum" comes from. This is an excellent model and I love the flying presentation.

Thanks guys.


Yeah, the strings... One day we will just use magnets to make it hover where you want it to.


My Top Gun modeling technique (...the need for speed) does produce some rough edges when you look closely, Some of the work in progress builds by others here are clearly an order of magnitude more refined than mine, but, yes, I agree that there is a place for model aircraft in 'flying' mode.
