    A mate of mine sent me this time-lapse video of the Mossie being put back together at Virginia Beach. Interesting stuff to see...but annoying that their production rate with a real aircraft is faster than mine with plastic model kits! :rolleyes:

    Nifty BN and thanks to the second comment, I did have the Benny Hill theme going through my head for the whole video.

    Good stuff. I'm quite surprised at the lack of rigging used to lift the fuselage onto the wing. We took a lot more precautions on RS700 to prevent bending the fuselage at the weak points.

    These guys have had a bit more practice with mossies, and it was a re-assembly, after more than a decade of build time....
