Many recent observations of radio novae show behaviour that is not predicted by the current standard models. Our multi-epoch eMERLIN observations of V959 Mon show a complex morphology that undergoes surprising changes during its evolution. We are modeling these changes using radio emission models in order to further our understanding of mass loss during classical nova explosions.
