    This build was lots of fun and I owe a lot to many for advice along the way so a great big thanks to all.

    Cheers,

    I was surprised at the size as she was coming together. Here she is, posing with some " better known in these parts" aircraft to give you a good idea of how large an aircraft she is.

    Thanks everybody for the kind words. I am feeling more confident with each build as my skills improve. Starting with group build 26 I will categorize my efforts in the intermediate category.

    As for GB 25, I have a date with a hamburger eating, lovable fella and I hope to get started very, very soon.

    Cheers,

    Jeff
