Fantastic stuff! I missed this on its first outing, good to catch up with such a rare bird in the process of rehabilitation 👍

 

I can see it's in good hands though 😉

Thanks Alan, good maybe but definitly shakey...

I'm sure glad you are putting in all this work.  As soon as you finish, Tamiya will announce a 1/48 Privateer.  It will cost $229 (USD) but I have to have one.  😄

Your probably right. Be my luck. There is a resin 1/48 Privateer at that price but I don't know the quality. just that it would be HEAVY and definitely not my Brother.😎

Quick update while waiting for stuff to print and stock to arrive. I got the main seams sanded down and 99% filled and added the tail assembly.

There are a few spots to go over again and re-scribe the filled panel lines. But over all this old girl is starting to take shape once again. I'll try to get more uploaded later in the week.

Until later stay healthy, stay safe.
