“Now thats a movie I've not seen in a long time... a long time” Great choice on subject matter. Looking forward to seeing this through.

That was quick. No fit issues with this one?

The wing isn't a great fit atop the fuselage, at the front.

Cockpit is all a bit vague - especialy as mine had just been painted.

That back seat looks very reclined.

AND I do wish I could fit the undercarriage AFTER painting.

 

Other than that - fine.

Thanks, tempted to get one in Aldi as I like the Yellowjacks scheme, heard it had a few problem points and wondered what was ahead of me.

Blue blazes Tim, you've really cranked this one out, I've been on nights all weekend & when I finish, you've finished another model. That'd have taken 3 weeks minimum I reckon. Nicely done too. :)

Tonight I applied a decals saying NAVY atop the wing.

Don't know why Airfix missed that - it's one the pictures.

Painted the remaing wheels, aerials and probes.

Can't complete tomorrow - I'm off to see Midway at the cinema.
