Definitely!  Actually, decent two stage Merlins as all teh alternatives are either too short (Pavla), too wide (Airwaves, CMR) or unavailable (Paragon).

Not just post war, because you've the two stage Merlins on the wartime mk VIII onwards - B.VIII, B.IX, B.XVI and B35 plus the PR equivalents and the nightfighters - NF30, NF

But you'd also need the bulged side panel bomber canopy too, plus the PR equivalent (also fitted to the TT35) which features an astrodome on top - the Aeroclub one is too wide for the Tamiya kit and the Falcon one only comes as part of a complete set and is not available separately from Squadron.

Colin, if and when Paul does the master for this, can you ask him to do it as a complete nacelle replacement like he did with the early Mosquito nacelles?  Makes life so much easier and I know that I for one would pay a little bit more to get the bits that way.

High Wooksta,
Sorry for late reply, looks like Glenn Ashley beat me to it!
