The Pegasus Master I is one of those types still in my stash.  I took to task the chap who made and sold these years ago at Scale Modelworld asking why he had chosen this oddball version.and was he going to produce the proper 2 seater Mk.I?  He insisted that this kit was the Mk.I and was totally unbelieving when I told him that his version was the single seat fighter project which was cancelled and the 12 finished aircraft were reconfigured to single seat trainers.  Which is why the kit has a short canopy and only one seat.

Well, that would explain the difficulty I've had trying to fit two seats, two control columns and two instrument panels into the space! I was following Alan Hall's construction notes from the first ever Scale Aircraft Modelling, plus a few photos I could find. I'm not sure what to do at this point. 😟

I would suggest you try to obtain a Frog or Novo Master and convert that using parts of the Pegasus kit.  I planned how to do that with sketches and notes long ago but not yet tried it.  You also need pictures of the different versions of Mk.I since there was a IA which had a different windscreen and wing tips.

No, it's all good now I know what I have. I was aware of the Mk.1a, and knew it wasn't that. I'm actually quite happy to know it's the fighter variant.

So my model will now be finished as an M.24 stopgap fighter after it has been returned to a training role. The photos I found of the fighter conversion don't show any guns fitted, and I can't see a gunsight, so there's not a lot to do. I finally got some more time on it today, and I'll post some photos tomorrow.

coming along nicely albeit with significant dust and fury. Thank you for the posts and insight they provide.
