or why you should not rush a kit to make a deadline!

Don't rush - we have a two week extension courtesy of the inestimable Enzo!

I managed to snap off the mass balance fairing on top of the right fin

Good recovery - and I wondered what these things were. But port and stbd are different, any idea why?

If you aren't aware yet the deadline was extended by two weeks. Maybe that will give you a bit of breathing room. 

 

G'day Dennis,

 

I was not and although that is welcome news, unfortunatley my deadline has not changed as I need to head off for a work trip and won't be back until after the deadline extension. I may yet make it though, fingeeez crossed,

 

cheers,

G'day people,

 

I managed to squeeze in some plastic time today. I have started to add the dark blue

The 65th used a very tight soft edge which in 1/72 would be difficult to replicate freehand (for me anyway) so I am using the worms method.

 

I was able to do the wraparound section on the nose

Some minor overspray but otherwise happy, but I am less happy with this section which will need re-doing

The decal sheet diagram is a little small and so it makes picking out the various 'landmarks' a little tricky but still, no excuses, a poor tradesman and all that. I will keep plodding away until I head off but this will not make the deadline unfortunately,

 

cheers,

 

Pappy

G'day people,

 

Unfortunately I won't be able to finish in time.

I would like to thank the mods for a great GB.

 

No need to feel bad for me though, I managed to get very close to the real things yesterday,
