    1st I painted the interior of the fuselage detailing the small mouldings on the size


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    next the cockpit floor had the same treatment

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the fuselage was then joined together

    [​IMG]

    wings added

    [​IMG]

    then the tailplane and undercarrage

    [​IMG]

    next the engine and cowling were painted and assembled with the rest left overnight to harden

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the engine and cowling were then fitted

    then the dash was made from card and fitted ready for detailing although you won't see much of this,once this has dried i will detail this and fit the rear gun and canopy.

    this is a really good quality kit with no flash,if you get the chance try one,thanks for looking

    i'm afried thats how i am Terry,once i get started and into something i just keep going until i've finished it,if i stop anything due to problems i lose interest and then take ages,last year i restored a DB18 Empress Daimler in 6 weeks from a wreak,i had another DB18 consort in the same condition but i had problems with the paintwork finish and lost interest,that car has taken me 5 years so far and there is not much to do

    Andy, I'm fairly sure I saw the AZ kit on the Model Hobbies web-site (I think that's where it was!), available now.

    You could try to this one. It's a USAAF marked Vultee Vengeance A-35 Target Tug 1944

    i found the site where you found the photo,looking at other details i've found it should have black and yellow lines on the underside although its not on this aircraft in the pic
