I love it, buddy, you're gonna knock it clean outta the park with this build!

I'd like to do one gear down so I can catch that distinctive Gutlass nose-high attitude when sitting on the deck.

 

Love it!

Going to be a great build to follow and enjoy. As Brian said, Paul's kits are awesome and the detail is fantastic. I totally enjoyed my Sea Fury build and the one problem I had with fit, Paul came to the rescue.

Keep 'em coming

Thanks man, you're SUCH A PAL, spending MY money like that!

 

Oh, you owe me 300 bucks, plus shipping! :rofl:

Will do, Jack.

 

Thanks, buddy!

 

How are you ever gonna cope if you model, say, a Bristol Freighter? The gear's down and welded. :rofl:

Hi Guy's,

 

    Trying to test fit the wings , spar and upper fuselage to see how this will go together.  I have to play with the parts to figure the best

 

 assembly routes since I want to use foil and paint for panels.  The panels work out to be 2 different shades of silver lacquer and 2 different

 

 foil treatments.  Can not have uneven seams with silver/foil. Did I mention this is my first All Resin kit?

 

     Also finishing up my SAM for the Vietnam G/B

 

     Will post some pics soon

 

      Thanks for checking in

 

   jack
