Thanks for the kind words of encouragement gents. Although often I see Hobbyboss maligned, I marvel at the fit and detail of their models. More pics to follow. Aidan

Thanks Eduardo. Fuse closed up now, canopies are masked using Tamiya tape and invisible tape. Wings added and had small gaps at the roots. Whatever possessed me, I stretched some sprue for the gaps rather than my usual of fill and wipe. In  my defence, I often seem to make an easy job harder than it should be. [bawl]  Quickboost stabs. replaced the kit abhorrence. Added these with 5 min epoxy as I am no great fan of cyano. Exhaust stubs painted with Gunze Burnt Iron (a must have paint for the rack ) then dust with some brown, then black pastels. Need to add the hud, sand down a couple of wee areas, clean her up, attach the glass and then ready for paint. Any suggestions on how to tint the armoured glass? [confused] Aidan
PS Just noticed when posting pics, the red scalpel is the Swann Morton "Trimaway" scalpel. I know many will advise new blade when masking. However, this is exceptionally sharp and the blade seems to keep it's age forever ie more than a few models have been masked with this blade. Useless I know but someone may feel it of help.

Sorry about the poor pic. Canopy masked and attached with Tam ET. Did it last thing before bed and was pleased with the fit of the front glazing with a little gentle pressure. Of course some night tripping fairy moved it a smidgeon off centre during the wee dark hours! Used Badger "rail brown" for the pre shading as I'm not the greatest fan of black and brown is more forgiving (Maybe it's because my straight lines sometimes resemble a dog peeing in snow [frown]) Have just now sprayed some Gunze H74 Duck Egg Green to the spinner and fuse.

What a kit! What a build. Everything looks spot on. I'm really interested in the engine.I spent quite a bit of time online
gathering pics of the Rolls Royce engine. I was considering trying to build the back part of the engine [just the top components
and leaving the "hood" loose so I could display it. Just did not think I was ready to make the parts convincing. Besides, the kit motor
[just the valve covers mostly] was very minimal [I posted pictures]. I am anxious to see more of your build and finish.
BTW--when plastic looks EXACTLY like rust, its fantastic. The exhausts are outstanding!

Aiden,
You asked, "Any suggestions on how to tint the armored glass?" Would pledge with a drop[or fraction] of the color you need blended in
create the effect? I read that suggestion a couple of times online.????

Thanks guys. Top and bottom grays are on and about to mask for the green (Tamiya XF81 Dark Green, XF82 Ocean Gray, XF83 Medium Sea Gray [wink] While considering markings, I delved a wee bit more into Jan Zumbach. It turns out he was larger than life and fascinating character. Following the war he did a bit of smuggling, was a mercenary, used plane trader and died under mysterious circumstances in Paris 1986. Really can't look beyond the kit offerings after all that, can I? Good thinking on the tint Ted.  [thumb] Aidan

oops, I got a red crowbar in my cockpit! [I did not know it was a crowbar-lol]. While looking at bombs and bomb racks I did see a crowbar that
was silver color. Next time I'll get it right? This round a closed canopy is my friend. I just proved that the forums definitely have an educational
component.

Firstly this is a great piece of work so far, and I can't wait to see the rest.  
On the subject of Jan Zumbach and the Poles, I caught part of a documentary on TV the other night which was an eye-opener for me.  It cventred around the contribution Polish Fighter pilots made during the BoB and throughout the war.  A humorous incident was when the Poles were taught formation flying by around riding on bicycles. I don't think they appreciated their treatment, as a number of them were veterans of the battles in Poland and France with kills to their name.  
However most poignant was the way they were treated after the war where they were the only allied nation that was not invited to the victory parade that headed by a flypast of BoB veterans in Spitfires!

Thanks Ryan, sorry I missed that programme. By all accounts, they were skilled and brave pilots. I must admit to having a laugh to myself Sunday afternoon getting ready to paint. The scene was set, the house to myself, peace and quiet at  last. ! I had sprayed upper grey, trying to avoid too much on the green areas lest I remove all pre shading. Picked up the wrong gray didn't I. Dump, clean, respray, abort. [frown]   Next, getting ready to mask, I noticed I wasn't tight enough to the green. Paint again, let dry. Eventually nowoin the middle of masking for the dk green. I blame senility! Aidan

Aidan,
We all have those moments. Early in the AM it is dead quiet here. Extractor fan running and the compressor is on. Nice music in the background. mask on, magnifier goggles
propped up above my forehead. SOMETHING is ON MY CHEST! Saw it out of the corner of my eye!! looked down, its gone. Looked all around--nothing. Back to work--THERE IT
GOES AGAIN!! what is IT? DOH---its the reflection of my light through the mag lenses I am wearing. Every time I place my head in a certain position, a flash of light ran across
my shirt. Sat back and chuckled under my breath............back to work grandpa!
