Thanks Maru!

 

Just a small update today. I drilled out some of the vents on the fuselage that get replaced with PE ones.

I also found that Werner's Wings does a one piece vac canopy for the AH-1W so I ordered one. It'll make it much easier to see the additional details in the cockpit plus being one piece, it should look much better too. 

 

Carl

looking good, I enjoyed building it as well.

I used 5 nickles in the ammo bay for nose weight, worked great and fit perfectly.

Also, watch out for the mould shift on the nose.

Hi Maru,

As you may have guess, I've really gotten into building Spitfires at the moment. I misplaced a couple bits including the decals which was one reason for the stoppage. I'll get back to the build after I finish the current Spitfire I'm working on so I'll probably have this moved to the WiP section at that point.

Thanks for the reminder,

Carl

Don't forget a new vacuform canopy from Werner's Wings.  The kit canopy is way off.
