No slacking here!! Great start P.S, but just a word of caution. If your'e intending to have the wheels down, the undercarriage legs can be a

bit bendy, some in this GB have suffered from this, lot least myself,

nice start. just in case - the spinner should be white with red tip (simply put, two kit parts,the tip is red, the base white :) ) and wing leading edges without yellow strip (thats correct on the image :) )

The only slacking is me. I forgot to start this thread last week when my Photobucket account reset.

I've assembled most of the airframe.

I suspect your work is an inspiration to many Tony - it certainly is to me! :)

Well I heated up that UC leg in hot water - not full happy with it yet.
Today I fitted all the finishing parts, like the exhausts.
