Loads of detail , rivets and panels etc, looks really nice.

Whats the retract fixing like , is it a bit delicate ? All the gear looks spot on , should be a real beauty when shes finished.

It's not the strongest of mounts but there's no scope to beef it up either, so all the landings will have to be greasers. Bin bag at the ready :)

I had a good look at the undercarriage mounts on the Mustang and they are really solid , in fact may be too strong. Get a landing wrong with these and the wing is in half, i will probably do what Weeksy does and fit them with small screws and hopefully they will pull out first.
Have you got all the paint for it now,

Here are two links to where i got my cockpit from www.propagteam.cz and www.aerocockpit.com hope this helps

Done a bit more to the Spit. I had to make all of the bulkheads and started painting all of the cockpit parts. Exhaust canister will be internal so will need to lag it well

The detail in the cockpit alone is a work of art, keep the pics coming for us mere mortals. :lol: :train(1):
