    I have finally gotten started on this. It will be a prewar example from 87 Squadron, 1938. So far the fit has been good, the main challenge being the somewhat large sprue gates on the smaller parts. The fuselage guns did not survive the process but their barrels did so the aircraft will still be properly armed. Onwards!

    I like the way it looks so far Bill.

    Some other methods of dealing with those pesky parts would be… 1) a heated X-acto blade (and old one)…2) a razor saw (a small one) or, using sprue cutters, detach far enough away from the part in order to file and/or sand the remaining plastic. Jus’ sayin’. – 🙂

    Great to see you are off to a flying Start, Bill! Interior is looking spot on! Thanks for the update on Sqn number and year – I have updated the list appropriately.
