  1. Thanks for your encouragement. I must admit that my references for much of what I@ve done so fare have been the old Aviation News drawings and the £D rendered images for the Clearprop 1/72 kit! I have downloaded some walkaround pictures and I@ll be using them from now regarding the relevant detail for the undercarriage and exterior.

  9. Finally!, the most obvious Missing link-tackled
