Been looking for these for years and years and years.

Some two stage love!

Hubba hubba hubba!

I think the HK kit doesn’t need much in mods for this version. Just basic PR stuff, but I do apparently like aircraft with lots of Hi-Viz red on them.

OK so he lost it on the roll out. Rack up enough taildragger time and you too will eventually have a sporty rollout.

I think the bomb bay doors have the camera windows moulded as knockouts with corresponding windows to put in them. 

It does build up really nicely. Too bad mine didn't last that long after completion.

I heard that too, Carl. It should be an easy conversion. And a unique one as well.

Nice Ernie. 

Never seen the stars'n'bars with the star segmented like that. Does it represent something specific?

Apparently all it is is someone forgot to remove the masking before spraying the emblems, and they just left it alone.

Th HK kit has everything in there, from memory, including the different canopy top

Thanks for the explanation Ernie.

Love that it was just simple cock-up and they left it!

It’s actually explained on the decal sheet. :)  

Which I found odd because a PR Mossie wasn’t exactly an aircraft that would be considered disposable or short lived. Most lasted a very, very long time.

I suppose the hope was that nothing from 't'other side' ever got close enough to have a good look and notice the mistake!

Yeah, they were pretty much untouchable and invincible unless they had an engine problem.
