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

    next the cockpit floor had the same treatment

    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
