    to make the conversion to stol 26, I do the leading edge of the wing if you look at this highly developed seems to have stung by a swarm of bees

    while I think like playing the edge, I start with the interior.
    all give some chipping paint dry brush and machaco the area with dirt, the plane does not have the care that can think, according to some shots of the film inside the plane very dirty

    as usual one of the seats has fallen me and also double-command, I'll have to find them only because they have gone to aguejro of the 4th dimension and are there for a while.
    placing internal bulkheads and I get to glue the two parts of the fuselage and "zasca" (it is a way of comment we have here it is like a punch in the teeth and you do not expect), is worse than the p-63, which has given me joy.

    I agree. Always wanted to do an Invader in 1/48th scale, but I just haven' got room.

    Now the modification of the nose as the kit brings one to the solid bow so I have to cut and paste pieces to mimic unions and other

    Lacy tests nose to see the corrections that I have to do or add
