This little gem is the excellent Revell kit plus a new fuselage:

As my time is scarce and I want a definite finish I'll be going for a wheels up OOB build and the early High Speed Silver with yellow bands scheme of 74 Sqn as displayed at Cosford

Nice! Do you have a photo of the decal sheet, by chance?

That does look very neat; it'll be interesting to see the build progress

They look interesting kits, I’m interested in seeing this build and how the small scale comes out.

Her you go, they provide the underwing serials a both single and multi-piece to go over the undercarriage door which is a nice touch.

Looking forward to seeing this one. Not seen one built up yet.

All the best

Greg

Looks like I'm first off the Mark (1) :mrgeen: as I've a day off work to do things.

Cockpit is a simple affair some nice seats, fat sticks and decal for the IP. I'm adding some Aeroclub white metal pilots. Got the wings joined and painted all the black bits v dark grey enamel.

Darn. I haven't even decided what to build and you're half done!

Good start. Better get my finger out and get the box out.

The pilots look a bit like the Mekon, or is it just the angle and a trick of the light? :grin:

Good start!

Great start James. Early money is on you being the first finisher.

All the best

Greg.

I've always thought 1/144 to be too small for most military jet fighters but actually this looks very nice with more detail and a better decal sheet than I was expecting. I'll not jinx the build further by joining in Greg's bet :ha:
