I already had this one part started and Tom mentioned a PR Mossie for Telford would be nice so I thought that was sufficient excuse to get it finished.

Here is the current state of play:

I'm not too sure what the connection is between this Mossie/540 Sqn and Coastal Command, so would someone please enlighten me.
cheers
Al.

With pleasue Al :grin: . During World War 2 all photo-recon activities were organised under the umbrella of Coastal Command as they were the best suited to the task. Mostly because of the links they had with the Admiralty and the rest of the RAF. Pretty much no one else was trusted to do the job without service bias :roll:

No. 540 Squadron was formed in 1942 and operated to 1946 with the Mosquito IV with them from Oct '42 till Aug '43.

Regards

Tom

Progress pictures from this evening:

The eagle-eyed will spot the damaged /missing section of the seat belt decal - I may touch it in with paint if time permits.
Image

Image

Dry fit of fuselage and wings - not the best at the moment so a bit more work inside required.
Image

Overall colour is Xtracrylix PRU Blue.

Cheers
Al.

Looking very nice Al. There can't be many
cockpits as detailed as that in 1/48 are there?
It's going to look great this one.
Pete.
