If I do get round to building mine I will cheat and do it in the all white Herman Goering scheme but then there are some lovely schemes around.

HM . Happy to be of help if I can.

Thanks D.D for info re Arizona . Tempted to go down that route and then add paint to covering as the previous choice looked somewhat insipid.

Ive emailed 'Todd" at Arizona this afternoon.... to find out how much it will cost and will then place order... using the excuse that its an early Christmas pressie for me! Ha Ha.

Spent this eve scratching my head.... first looking for small assemblies I know I had already completed and trying to remember solutions to little problems I had devised but now forgotten... and not written down anywhere.... and where did I put that aliphatic resin glue.....🤣

First job is to finish the serrated wing leading edge sheeting... just top of too wing to do.... must remember to glue in the strut attachments first!.... then back to finesse the dummy sprung tail skid assembly. It’s not going to be steerable but don’t think that will matter for amount of ground roll with skid on the ground.

I decided to use 0.8 mm ply as the centre of the sandwich for the wing strut attachment points! Only problem was that I had already started attaching the serrated leading edge sheeting to one side. So inserting the 0.8 mm ply spacer was akin to keyhole surgery!!! At least I had the rib outlines still so was able to replicate exact size and eventually patience won!ac4daa60-30da-4eba-b12c-89e7e8016d65.jpeg

Yep. Saw that photo before.... really brilliant scale effect. Just the addition of the green tape as the belt for the ammo makes a massive difference.
