    Trying to get myself back into this. I fell out with the Stoof. I will finish it but need something a little more simple and fast pace to get the juices flowing again. Got a new computer and am learning it to so bare with me. Started a cockpit painting already and will get some photos up this weekend. Been looking for cockpit photos of this bird and found a few but nothing decisive. Really like this bird and if anyone knows where I can find a Mk. I Mustang in 1/48 please let me know. They were the only ones with the eight gun setup. Four 50s, and four 30s. Anyway, here we go.

    Andy, if a mod is willing to move this thread, I'll edit it with the proper headings and have a go.
    And thank you George, I sent a PM.

    Here a couple of pics of the kit sprues ....

    Great stuff Aaron, and a subject I've long wanted to do too. I should have some reference material you can use - not sure if I have your e-mail address, so if you'd care to PM it to me, I'll get something sorted for you.
    As for Mk1 Mustangs, both AM and Hobbycraft used to do one, along with ICM I think. I see them pop up now and then on e-bay, and there may be one at a King Kit too.
    EDIT: Just checked King Kit, Aaron, and they have both the AM and ICM kits in stock, pre-owned, but they'll be complete and in good condition, if not 'new, old stock'. Forgot to make a note of the prices, but I think the AM kits were £19.99, and the ICM a bit less.

    Thank you for the E-mail Terry! I've been doing the cockpit details at a leisurely pace today. Working on keeping it neat. The instrument panel is clear and has a decal that goes on from the back. Been trying to figure out the easiest way to mask the gauges so I can paint the front face of the panel. Not come up with anything neat and simple yet.

    Thank you Wayne and Jeff. Been doing research on the info everyone has sent me and painting as I find what is and is not there in the kit. Once I get the cockpit together I will post some shots.

    Been doing a lot of painting and fitting. Just about ready to start putting together. I ended up free hand painting the face of the instrument panel and I didn't do too bad. The photos I have seen of the floors in the Mk.IAs when they have had some use and wear look to be of wood. I may try to weather the floor and some other parts but not sure yet. I know I'm moving at slow pace but I'm moving. Anyway, here are some shots. Got to wait for the paint to dry before I go to putting it together.

    Starting out nice Aaron. I just used some Gunze Sangyo light brown and dry brushed the floor a bit.
