Another Airfix Mossie ++Finished++


Recommended Posts

Due to the slight breeze we are currently experiencing, I couldn't get the paints out for the Bf110

So

I broke into the stash for this

I think there's already another build of this kit in the GB, so I won't post individual sprue shots

Here's the plastic

And the rest

As per the usual process, I started sticking bits together

The standard plan is to slap the interior colour all over then paint in some detail later

I'll need the wind to drop for that to happen, but there are other sub-assemblies which can be, er...,. assembled while the storm passes

 

More soon(ish)

Well, that looks a little familiar! It's a really nice kit (so far), feel free to have a nose at my build to cop the paint colours Eduard used on the 3d decals ;)

the bomb bay error put me off the initial release. Is it fixed in this version?

The PR boxing has a new bomb bay part for the camera windows

Thanks.

I didn't know there was an error (head in the sand, me), but at least now I know it's probably fixed

Dodged a bullet there

Airfix studied an airframe that had been used as a target tug, so the bomb bay doors were bluged on the initial bomber release. There's correction sets out there though

Not had much time at the bench but a little progress has been made.

Quick update, primer was sprayed (yes, there's a Bf110 hiding in the back)

Then cockpit green and some additional colours

IP decals need to be applied then I think it's ready to join up the fuselage

 

More soon(ish)

A bit more pottling around today saw the IP decals attached

And a bit more coulour in the 'pit

It's probably nowhere near accurate, but it's enough to show something other than green or black through the canopy

(oops, that last pic toppled over, sorry)

 

And the fuselage halves are joined :happy:

Seams tidied up

And all clear parts stuck on and masked off

The canopy was a bit of a pain

My fingers just wouldn't work right. Took ages to stick it togther

 

Should get some primer and paint on it next weekend

 

More soon(ish)

I'm glad it's not just me that's having issues with the canopy! Your Mossie's looking good, Peter, I'm looking forward to seeing the paint
