Another kit I should not start.

This is the smallest plane I have ever seen, so why not.

I've one of these in the stash so I'll follow along. Really like the minimalist markings.

I built one of these a few years ago, the engine is a beautiful little model in its own right but I found it impossible to fit within the cowling.  As it would be invisible anyway I ended up leaving it out and display it separately.

Decals on, there is a lot of decals on this kit, 8 in total.  They are very thin and easily torn, but settle down well.

 

Next exhausts.

More progress:

Engine and exhausts in place, the exhausts are a nightmare to install.  Had them the wrong way around and glued in CA, took them out and stuck them in the right way with PVA.

MGs and pitot tube will be replaced with tubing.  The MGs have to have a piece added to them to make them longer, there is no way the glued extensions would stay in place.  Have a look at the box art.

Engine cover had to be thinned on the inside to fit over the engine and some of the exhausts had to be chopped a tad.  Wonky wheel is also fixed.  I have snapped the tail wheel off.

Nice!  I'm planning to make the Type 18 (same except with a tailskid, I think) for the upcoming blitzbuild, so thanks for the preview!
