My chosen colour scheme is to replicate the USAF(E) display team “The SkyBlazers” based in West Germany during the 1950s. I do appreciate that Martyn K is also building an aircraft from the same display team but is happy for me to continue my build. This will be my first attempt at building a PSS model.

Hi Tony,

You could always choose a different tail number from Martyn's version!

Martin.

First task was to carry out a full check of all parts. Everything was in order and I am very impressed with the quality of both the kit and the plans.

The wing plan was then cut to a shape that fitted the work surface.

My first schoolboy error, and one of many I expect in the build. During the dry fitting process I inadvertently miss-assembled the formers. However, this was very easy to rectify.

The joints only required slight sanding to make a good tight joint.

Next step is to build the wings. Has anybody thought about fitting navigation lights into the wing build?
