    Some of ya'll have seen the pics of these over on the Mk1 thread but I thought I would post some in progress shots here.Is this a start to build thread? No,but a clear the bench thread.These have been on the bench for over two years and I was getting bored with the MK1 and instead of jumping into a totally new build I decided these needed to be completed first.I have a book with four birds in it from the 405th and I am using it on the two Tamiya kits the third kit is going to be "Drink'in Sister"from Revell/Monogram.This kit(Revell) could be much better if I had put a couple more hours into it to fix some sink marks I did not notice till the silver was laided down and you know 50/50 I might still fix them?Yes I have got some more done on the MK1 also but turned out the lights in the shop for the damn termites were flying tonight on there yearly move.I swear my door was not cracked but 10 minutes and I had 34 flying around the shop.Well pics....
