That cowling looks really good Ian, this

is coming along very well.

I'm interested to see how the wing guns go in - it looks a good idea to have them separately mounted.

A penny short of a tenner, there should be a prize just for the nearest to a tenner.

All looking very good. Nice engine. Being Revell, any ideas of the kit origins, or is it actually Revell ?

It is an actual Revell kit Colin It did say it on the wing until I sanded it off

You've done a great job of blending everything in Ian - looking forward to seeing it with paint on

Sure is Aaron. 'Jug' is short for 'Juggernaut', a name given to the aircraft by American pilots due to its enormous size. When you compare a scale Spitfire or Mustang to a P-47, the huge size is easy to see.
