Looking great

It's amazing every time how some markings and lines change the appearance.

Good luck for the first flight!

It looks fantastic Martin. I look forward to seeing it next Sunday. I hope I'll have something to bring along, trying very hard!

Thanks all

The camera is being overly kind but I have enjoyed the build even though it has been a bit of a race against the clock.

The sad news though is that I have had to withdraw from the Nats due to an unexpected family event from which I cannot escape from. I am really disappointed about this, especially for Danny and Andy Sephton who have both provided me with a great deal of support and encouragement when things were not going as well as expected.

Yes a real shame Martyn. But never mind you have clearly enjoyed the experience
We will have to reconvene next year

I am not sure that I want to wait that long. The indoor season is coming to an end but I am sure that I will be able to identify something to go to in the Autumn. If I get to GA this year I'll bring it with me for a nice calm (hopefully) evening flight.

Also got a couple of ideas for another indoor build that I want to explore

So.. back to the Chippie and prepping a completing and couple of models for the Walsall FF Indoor scale Nationals. I only have 5 weeks to get ready for this one..
