Calling this one done. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the build. Learnt some new techniques including my first rivet job and also learnt hairspray and masking tape don't mix no matter how long its been on!

How did you handle the insulators on the radio aerial? I'm always curious the best way to render them.

Some stretched spruce just slightly wider than the wire. cut to length then white glue dabbed on aerial and spruce dropped on. white glue tends to mould around both. touch of white/grey paint to finish. first time I've tried to replicate and best idea I could come up with.

Drilled out or split?

Really nice, Aaron! Love the way you rendered the "15", really well executed chipping and weathering.
