Bill Gilman Thanks, Bill. The photos you've gathered support what I've learned about Mk.IX headrests. I have a copy of an article called "Five to Nine" with describes in detail the differences between the Mk.V and the Mk.IX. As we all know, the IX was originally derived from the Vc, and quite a few of the early IX's were Vc conversions. These seem to be the ones with headrests. In June 1942, Mod 662 deleted the headrest on all marks. Tamiya are right by not including a headrest. Now, why there seemed to be two different sizes of headrests on the earlier marks is unknown to me. Maybe a difference between Supermarine and Castle Bromwich builds?

Bill Gilman More photos! The main components of the fuselage are now together. The fit of the parts is extraordinary. At this point, I may have a go at the engine as that's going to be a major project all on its own. Cheers, Bill

Treehugger Looks like fun! I've slowly built up a desire go have a go at some 1:32 scale kit.

Bart Goesaert Nice work, separate covers and no inner detail... what about the aftermarket industry? but then the lowered borders to mount these plates on could be less deep and have the mounting holes provided...

Holger Kranich Hey uncle Bill, what do i see here? 1:32? And such a nice one ? I´ll take a seat and make it myself comfortable! :)

Bill Spargo Wonderful to watch a master builder in action, the model is looking great Bill. Well done, so much to learn from your build, thanks.
