    These might help you Bob, taken at DX this year and two years ago. First, the Mk1 as it looked in May, second, the cockpit and nose from the MkIV. The cockpit area was basically the same on both.

    progress so far over 5 nights,the mk1 had the lower cockpit glass missing from the front so i will have to remake this,as there are not many parts they have gone together very quickly but plenty of detailing work now going into the cockpits,

    thanks for looking

    Despite the issues you seem to be making headway. Having recently built the Airfix I can say comfortably that it is a dog of a kit. Are you going to fix the engine nacells? They are to long and thin.

    I have a MPM Mk 1 from back when we did the Battle of Britain GB. I must get back to it some time soon. I look forward to seeing more of your progress.

    A nice progress to both of these models Bob. Looking very good.

    I have noticed you were using the Revell glue in a tube. You might try to the same glue but in the special container which makes its applying much comfortable.

    Love these old kits! I have a question for you lot! Does anyone actually use tubes of cement any more ??

    I have loads of tubes but never use them as the precision needle glue is just great....lol

    I use tube glue a lot for parts that won't be seen and need to be fiddle about.

    I do too for parts where I need a lot of strength or a part that needs to stay in place from the holding power of the glue until it sets up.
