    I need to replace the prop to make it a K model hence the resin bit. I also have a set of resin exhausts kicking around somewhere.

    Cheers, David.

    Good one, should like great when done. Technically, you need to replace the canopy with a 'Dallas' hood too, but to be honest, it won't be noticed in this scale.

    Cheers fellas. Hope I can do her justice.

    The Dallas hood comes as an option in the kit. Which was handy.

    Ah Ha! That's you sorted then David - I didn't know the kit had the optional parts, I'll bear that in mind for future projects. Thanks for the info.

    Past due for an update. I have been working on this slowly. Need to tidy up a few things. Wheel bays aren't the best - had trouble with ZC yellow and then I don't think the wash was entirely dry before I flat coated it. Anyhows....

    Looking good so far. Note that the control column has been mounted the wrong way around though.
