Always catches my eye, I'm just waiting for the grandkids to get to an age where grasping hands don't wreck hours of work!

Yeah I built the Airfix 1/24th Spit as a youth.
Paintjob wasn't up to much, I didn't have an airbrush.
But it was heavily worked-over with an electric motor inside the Merlin etc.
It was quite big for a plastic kit, the Mossie must appear quite massive.
That would be a nice Winter Project, just tidied the workroom, isn't it just begging to get messed up?

Haha no flightsimming in here, Greg!
The workroom is the repository of a great many Unfinished Projects.
I go there largely for the view :) this time of year the autumn colours out there are spectacular.
