If you have seen photographs of the same plane with both styles of elevators, then choose the part that YOU like best. If you can’t make the decision, then wrap both parts in paper, close your eyes and have someone shuffle them around. Open your eyes and pick one.

Lots more bench time this past weekend and the progress shows.  It looks like a plane, minus the front of course.

After my dilemma about the elevators I found a website, spitfiresite I believe it was called, that spelled out all the changes to the Mk.IX from previous versions of the plane.  It was very helpful and made my decision to go with the later style elevators much easier.

Again, I can't emphasize enough how great of a kit this is.  I cut the part off the sprue, clean it and it just fits.  No fooling around to make things work a real joy.  As you can see from the photos, the airframe is finished as is the landing gear, I just haven't attached it yet.  The next step is to build, paint and install the engine.  Once that is done, which will probably take some time, this baby will be on to primer and paint.

Thanks for all the comments guys,

I cleaned up most of the seams last night with just the leading edge of the wing still to do.  I also got started on the engine, which is a mini kit in itself.  

I agree, when the kits fits as nice as this one does it's kind of like building a lego kit.  Faster build means more time to paint and weather.

Thanks,

Very true, so I have great expectations for your paint job, lol
I do have the Tamiya Mustang in my stash. Following your build really makes me wanting to start the kit :-)

I also have the P-51 kit in my stash, maybe we should do a SIG in the future for Tamiya 1/32 Mustangs......

I'm sure we're not the only ones with the kit and looking for a reason to make it next on the list to build.

Oh and I hope I live up to your expectations for the engine.

Hi everyone,

  Not a big update for you today but I sprayed the engine sub-assemblies and the frame work in their respective colours.  I still have to glue them all together and theen pick out a few parts here and there with some additional colour.  Once that's done it'll be on to weathering.

The first photo is of the engine sub-assemblies and the others are of the sprayed engine and frame.
