:) Hi, Mike, Thank You, I am putting a 3w 140 in it, and I got the semi-kit off a Bloke that moved to England
about 10 years ago. Got most of the drawings and plans off Brian Martin, and various bits and pieces where I
could find. :) Made the rest.

Thanks for the Info, Theuns, cannot see all the detail on the photos, so, will do the tapes again.
Going to do the RCAF colour scheme, as it is much easier to see in the air... :D

It is looking good! Keep plodding away. When you are finished, you will suffer withdrawal and look for the next project, and the next.......!

For the money you are spending on this fine model you could refurbish a "real" one!
It looks great though.
