    Kit: Lindberg OA9 Goose
    Scale: 1/48th
    Accessories: Wheels from the spares box , Scratch built rudder, Dropped elevators and added balances

    This one was a lot more work than I had anticipated with the warped wing and generally awful fit of the parts, but here it is. Hope you guys like it.
