Got the matt coat on today after a quick highlight of the control surfaces with a black wash ,then a fine misting of Tamiya XF86 Flat clear . Not much left now , just machine guns , the molins gun , landing lights ,whip aerial and a bit of weathering / exhaust stains then unmask the canopy and nav lights and we’re done . 62747F84-F061-47BD-AEFD-726D20109F9D.jpeg

Well this ones crossed the finish line , the last few bits have been done . I added the exhaust stains on the nacelles ,fitted the carburettor intake grilles , fitted the machine guns and molins gun , a whip aerial from a paintbrush bristle and de masked the canopy and nav lights.
The underwing landing lights were added using some diamante jewels which came off a blouse my daughter in law was throwing out , suitably cut to size and fitted in the holes . The fighter / bomber versions of the mossie have a distinctive central windscreen wiper so that was added from a couple of tiny pieces of black paintbrush bristle. Thanks to Ian for suggesting this GB , heres a few to finish this thread , ill put a ‘completed‘ thread on later with more pics . Thanks for watching cheers tonyA9D2F225-D3DC-486A-8159-6BFAD19AD4B1.jpegF0A52C92-A4E6-41A6-AEF7-C19C7E42C3D6.jpeg694C0C76-E86D-4B9F-8646-9B0F017C04C8.jpegD6EE1510-42B5-4995-A79E-B546CF174503.jpeg6D5B9537-7735-4AAF-9AC2-F54F9D557C58.jpeg4D8C3AA9-831E-4148-B10C-047D01CA2E77.jpegFD977C9D-2675-4802-8D4A-130BBC1CF9B5.jpeg2A37E4FA-96D4-4419-AC69-BA8A554211CA.jpeg

Lovely job on that Tony. First time I’ve noticed the windscreen wiper as well.
