    Just finished this yesterday, a couple of minor things to do but pretty much done.
    Was being very careful while handling it but still managed to break the aerial of and now its gone missing:(
    If I still can't find it I will have to scratch build another.

    Turned out nicely Mike. The aerial post shouldn't be hard to make.

    Cheers, Otaki is a town 15 minutes from me. We found a very old collection of models at the Ohakea air show in the weekend, the guy bought them and never built them.
    My mate was very stoked to find most of the kits he built as a kid in PNG in the 79s

    Nice Jug, Mike. Try using a guitar pick to scratch build the antenna. The "medium" or "hard" picks are great: Contoured, smooth edges; easy to cut and shape; and just pliable enough to resist snapping or breaking. -Mark
