Started this little excursion to 72 scale during the last week. I'm anxious how this will develope. But my first insight is: 72 scale is much smaller than 32 scale ;)

Hi Moritz, clean and promising progress so far... Will you do an inflight scene over Water? count me in

Moritz Fentzahn
Thank you Johne, you're welcome
Whilst waiting for the next paint session, I found a new kind of occupational therapy. For the dio I need round about 40 RP-3 rockets. I will use Brassin parts from Eduard but they need to be completed by two scratchbuild brackets to fit on the firing rails. So I have to build 80 of this, each made of 4 little pieces of sheet. I think this could take some hours

;) you're very welcome Daniel, it will be a scene where the Mossie gets its rocket load on a muddy runway in Banff

Nearly one year later, I completed the basic paintjob an started to apply the decals. Hope to finish this project in the next weeks.

Welcome Roland, glad to have you around.
I finished the decals and did a light oil dot filtering on the Mossie. Next step will be some panelline wash before I can finish the assembly and start the final weathering

Super subject and progress! Advise me, Moritz, does the kit go together well? Thinking of this in 72nd
14. September 2019, 23:32
Moritz Fentzahn
Thank you Andy, yes I can recommend the kit. No issues at all. I had very little trouble with the canopy, but that was because I used aftermarket seats which were a bit too high, so it was my fault. Out of the box this kit will Fall together easily. Enjoy your upcoming build and keep us posted

Andy Ball
Cheers Moritz- likewise with your build, look forward to it's imminent completion!
