    No way! I have seen the fine work you do with paper, but if you can build this egg shaped [email protected], you sir, are the king of card modelers!

    Oh Boats, you do like to make life a struggle. But I have a suspicion it will be a jewel.

    Thanks guys for your replies on my killer flea,A very unusual build for5 me I cant think of any earlier aircraft in the jet age the Luffwaffe had them so it will be a great addition to the new GB................ As soon as everyone gets started on thier builds I will begin the build not very many parts to the build so I will take it slow Thanks fellas for your replies...

    Now its time to build all rested up primed and pumped and ready to turn too, The GB No.17 has begun on the following pictures The formers have been glued down on light cardboard stock and the fuselage skins have been cutted out and edged in black to simulate panel lines it5s going to be a fast build no matter how slow I go I will throw in another GB build when this is done..... I never built one of these before it will be my first one thing for certain its the beginning of the jet age with this flying coffin....... Okay fellas here are some pictures of the layout of the formers and fuselage skins.

    Okay fellas the build has just begun Starting with the fuselage skins and former 1 through 6 have been attached, I will have the intire fuselage done this evening........ As to the build there are no fit problems present a good kit one thing for certain this little Gem is small the cockpit comaprtment is very spasre enough detail there to show that the killer flea has a pilots ccompartment I would amagin on the real machine its tiny to get into.................. The kit dont give yo no pattrern for the canopy only a solid printed one but I will need that for a pattern to make for the clear canopy......... The rear windows on back of trhe canipy have been cutted out and acetate has been glued inside useing contact cement tacky or elmers glue wont do in time it will fall out so i used contact glue. When the fuselage assembly is completed i will let same dry over night in the morning i will burnish out the fuselage to smooth out the seams, Here are the update pix.
