Hi Bruce, have been working on steadily and found out about the Flap problem. It really is out of line so that the flap moves sideways a bit. Thought about for a while and decided to build the second wing while I continue to think of a solution. I have put together the Nacelle frame work to see how it will fit to ensure that I do not build something in the wrong space.
I have found a solution to the flap probem, with some very nice hinges to hold the control rod so will get back to that shortly.
So here are some photos with the present progress.

WOW looking great I'm amazed how much progress you have made w/ all of your traveling
quite impressive!
I can't see if you have completed the joint between the two wing haves but never the less great
work. Don't go to far w/ the nacelle be for you get the gear in there LOL!!

Thats right I have not completed the jointing between the two wings, just the bolts. Have to add the dihedral brace etc....Also to fine sand the second wing before top sheeting. Then start on the Flaps again and the elevators for both wings. Finally the landing gear to a buy pre-made or build?? As for the nacelle just wanted to see how it would fit and where the bracing should go.before I go to far with building the Flap hinges and control gear and install the landing gear. Just a bit of forward planning.
Finally I am going on another short trip to the coast, as it is warm here so a bit of sea breeze is in order (and to keep the wife happy).
All the best Rod

So a lot still to go.

Yes Roddie... But you are making great headway and it's a smart thing to plan ahead
I'm still working on the P- 38 but once I get her to the painting stage (The aft end) I will have drying time so then I will also set up the Mossie in my new building room and get back on that FLAP set up/ landing gear along w/ many other things yet to do.
the P-38 was started 5/17/11 so I wanted to push a bit on that one, but I don't want this project to fall by the way side either.

Progress has stalled on my mossie for awhile, been busy with some landscaping and any building time has been devoted to an Extra for IMAC and a patternpmodel lately. And with the expected arrival of our first baby in July, we'll see what happens then

ps, there is some really nice work going on out there, keep it up guys

Well congratulations Graham I hope you keep on building, BUT when my first one was born I too was building a "Stuka" well needless to say it was 18 plus years until I got back to building models I hope you have a different experience and can teach the little one to build and fly as well
And YES! we have a good bunch of guys building this plane on this thread it seems that most of us are busy w/ other things right now, but I now have all of my stuff moved in the building room and as soon as I can put everything in it's place the Mossie will go on the other side of my new work table and I'll be able to work both planes P-38 & Mossie at the same time. here's some shots of the new room.
