    Nice one Chris. Can you add 'Group Build' to the end of the post's title please? That's to ensure it's moved into the GB thread when it's sorted.

    By the way, note that this aircraft had the older, pre -VHF radio fit, and therefore the early, 'straight' radio antenna mast. Also, the fuselage roundel had the smaller red centre.

    Looking good there. To change the thread title, just go to 'Edit', and add the 'Group Build' to the end of the title block. Don't worry if you can't do it, I'm sure it'll be sorted anyway.
