    I will follow as I have this kit sitting in my stash where it may very well make an appearance with the next group build.

    Cheers,

    Cockpit in progress. I have some Eduard photoetch on order to enhance the poor Kit instrument panel and decal harness.

    Looks like you're off to a good start. I have the Classic Airframes kit waiting to be built. Got cheap because the decals were crap in the box.

    Upper wing being prepped for camo and weathering prior to assembly. Wouldn't dare risk doing it once glued together..

    Very nice so far. I just purchased a bi-plane which may or may not be started.
