    Beautifully done Roman. It might be an old kit, but it's one of the best Airfix has made, and still one of the best Mossie kits available.

    Get building Wayne! See if you can get the old Revell 1/32 sclae BIV, and convert it to the FBVI. Would look great! Only problem I see, without using a conversion kit anyway, is making the machine gun flash suppressors _ I've been trying to figure a way of doing that for a few years!!

    Awesome build. The only thing i can see what wants to be altered is that the tyres need flattening slightly.

    The weathering looks FAB.

    Nice choice Wayne. I presume you've got the decals for 'Rufe', if not, I've got 2 spare sets if you want 'em.
