Good work on that.
I like that you weren't afraid to share the flaws along with the good

Yea well, there is a few flaws whit it. like I could have tried to hide the panel lines above the weel houses a bit better.

Lat summer when I first started on it I actually cut out that part of the whing to save me the headache of painting the wheelhouse after I sprayed the plane. Talk about ruining a perfectly fine model.

Second yellow wing strip is missing as well, didn't want to yank of the landing gear to paint that on.

And a bit to much glue in a few places, that I didn't bother sanding off.

Problem is I'm a bit impatient sometimes and then the result turns in to crap.

Anyway I should have something up on my BMW R75 whit sidecar in a day or so.

Nice build!

I believe that Airfix has just released, or is about to release, the 1/48th scale version of this kit, too.
