    Ok, lets call this a wrap. My heart was just not into this one as I would have liked. But, overall, I am ok with the build. Required shots below:

    Hey, guys, thank you for all the kind words. I do need to go back and add the aerial wire. I will get that done tonight and repost the pics.

    Yep, agree with Vic. You've almost talked me into getting one of these.

    Hey, Guys,
    I did go back and add the aerial wire. I wound up drilling a small hole at the top of the rudder, just forward of the peak of the rudder. I super glued in a thin, stiff piece of wire for the mounting "post" for the aerial. Painted it and added the aerial. Andy, thanks once again for the lead on the thread you mentioned in one of my earlier posts. I am just too lazy to shoot new pics unless someone really wants me to. Like I said, my heart was just not in this one. The 109G for GB 23 has my attention now.
