Sorry Mike, :BANGHEAD2: I've been sleepwalking on this one. Thanks for your continued interest. Here's the bit that's been kicking my err, bottom.

The bottom wing.

That silver paint don't hide a thing. Not very happy with the outcome but I've done my best and I've got to draw the line somewhere. There is always a gap between what I want to achieve and what my sausage fingers can actually produce.

Only other progress is that I got the vertical tail on straight.

I have just got some of those Archer rivet decals which I'm going to experiment with replacing some bits that got erased while cleaning up.

Fingers crossed they come out okay.

Thanks for taking a look.

Progress is just sitting down and enjoying the build as you go.
Looking forward to see how the rivets turn out.

Looking very good Dan! Please share your experiences with the Archer rivets, I'm very curious about them. I'm looking for something like that for one of my future builds.

I think your "sausage fingers" have done quite well!I thought about getting one for a couple of years. Might have a go some time. Yours is turning out very well. Looking forward to more posts....Harv :speak_cool:

Any news about this build of a so cool aircraft ? :)

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)
