Finished up the cockpit and closed up the fuselage - (left the front end loosey goosey to go back and try to fit that Hurricane engine I detailed earlier.) - 2nd time I've built the Spitfire and both times the control column ends up hard against the gun fight.....My bad... :?

You make the long trip safely and then ding your motor entering the drive way.....Well similar on this build - crazed the front wind screen on my canopy and had to use a tint on it to subdue the damage (I know Spits didn't have tinted wind screens. Then I bent my aerial wire whilst moving the finished model - Jus tone of those days .... Here's some shots of the finished kit,,,
