Pushing on...The most recent Roden offering I built was over a year ago. It was one of the Oeffag Albatri and although I have always liked the Roden version, it suffered from the same Roden flaws: poorly fitting stabilizers, that sort of thing. Nothing a little elbow grease couldn't fix. I am expecting the same from the Brisfit. I'll build OOB as much as possible and use the supplied decals. I hope they don't fall apart! This particular craft was flown by Maj. W.G. Barker and HRH Prince Edward of Wales manned the Lewis gun. I won't hold his future choices against him! I'll use some of my Mr. Kit paints for the PC-10 and CDL. I am looking forward to the typical high detail found in the Roden boxes. I will also rig with the full assortment of double flying wires. That means a lot of drilling, a lot of holes. I'll use .004 monofilament for this. Control horns will be scratched. So here it is... I'll clean it up and prime tomorrow morning.
