Nah - popped out for a long weight - but the hardware shop was out of stock. Had to use a short weight instead - well - quite a few actuerlly ;)

Fuselage is buttoned up and is taped up whilst it dries - pix later - maybe.

It's taken me longer to find parts on a sprue than it's taken to get this far!

This project is partly a test exercise for me - I have far too many kits in the stash - but intend building most at some point...

However my build rate is fairly poor (nobody mention Connie please! ;)) because I'm always sweating the little things - things that I then don't really see when they're sat in the cabinet...

What I'm trying to prove to myself is that a neatly assembled model - with a nice paint job - can look great... And I just need to apply that 'don't sweat it' approach to my other projects...

I know I'm rambling - it's my age. I'll start dribbling next!

Just about to start on the main gear bays/cowlings - but having a beer first - one of our locals 'Hobgoblin' from the Wychwood brewery :)

The cockpit looks great, Iain!

I call this a "regaining my sanity" build. We all need one, from time to time. :D

I hear ya, eveyonce in a while you need to do an OOB box just to enjoy the process without sweating the research, mods, aftermarket, etc.

Mentioning the Connie would be really unfair...


...how are the Lightning parts coming along? :DodgeBall:


Seriously, your pace is really stunning. I thought, I have a good run at the moment, but that is still snail speed in comparision. And the quality is, fine, too, judging the pictures...

... I'm looking forward to see the final result! :)

There's nothing like bad fit, there is just not enough putty...

Back soon - I *need* food...

Looking good 32 SIG,

I hope the `weights' that you put in the fuselage weren't what you had leftover after you assembled whetever they came from!

Check out and like my Facebook page.

You have a virtual Ikea hardware store going on there! LOL

Looking good, I can't wait until this kit hits North America, it looks like a blast.

Nah - I'm a slacker today...

I do have an almost complete airframe though - having worked on her 'till 01:30 local!

Piccie after I've taken the boy to school.

Will have to stop work soon mind - have a few bits I need to sort for Telford :)

As promised - this is where we're at - not bad considering I started her at lunchtime on Tuesday!

Wings are just slotted on at present - good fit once the flash removed.

Some sanding this am - and a little filler in places - then I need to pack for Telford...

lain,
I eat dinner, run errands, take a nap, work on my own plane and you're STILL not done? I thought sure you'd have it in the display case already!
Good lord man in a couple of weeks at this pace you could build an entire rote from an NJG LOL
Keep up the excellent and entertaining build, and dont forget to rest once in a while!
All the best to you and your build,
Paul
