This will be my build and it looks like a nice kit. Quite a few ejector pin marks in the wrong place but nothing major. Building it with no external stores so it looks like the ones from my favourite war film 633 Squadron. Good luck everyone taking part.

They might not all be ejector pin marks Mick, the Mossie interior had a number of circular plywood discs stuck on as mounting points for various extras.

Hi Mick,
I'm another one doing this same kit.... although judging by Tim's Spitfire,and knowing your aircraft builds.... I'm going to be  RIGHT at the back of the class!! ;)

The raised discs on the walls of the cockpit, as others have said are reinforcement points.

Just something I've noticed here Mick,and I'm probably being stupid,(no surprise there !! ;) ),
The kit is 1/48 .... But the mask set says 1/32?.... Is that right?
.... Just curious :smiling3:

Well spotted that man, I was sent the wrong size but then included it in the pic, durrr
Ha!...
I only noticed because,after my cock up with ordering the wrong set number,I was interested in seeing which one yours was..... then, when I zoomed in,I saw that it was marked 1/32.
The tribulations of canopy masking eh?!! ;)

The Tamiya canopy is not to bad to mask off, but there is more than one way to flog a cat. And Remember; the Mossie had some frames of the canopy that was only INSIDE the canopy so will need painting befor the thing goes on the fuselage.
