Looks to be a lovely kit.

That is a nice video Mick.

I love the way the fit on these Tamiya kits is.  When I finally build my new system, I am going to treat myself to The P-38, the Tamiya 1/48 F-14D and the 1/32nd F-4U Corsair.  The Mossie is lovely from what I can see but too big for my area.

 That is a great looking new entry, unfortunately, $80.00 is a bit much when older $20.00 entries can be made to look nearly as good.

 I do really like the improvements in the wheel well and gear door attachment areas but not worth a sixty dollar price difference.
