    Well, round two for me includes my first attempt at a biplane as well as my first Italian aircraft. Looking forward to this. Not sure of C/S just yet but lots to choose from on the decal sheet.

    Production is underway on this build and I started with the engine and it's cowling parts. I managed to snap off one little piece and it has been devoured by the polystyrene gremlin. Anyway, here is the progress to date.

    Will need to do a bit of putty work along a couple of seems but I want to let the glue cure for 24 hours before I do that.

    Cheers,

    Jeff
