Good afternoon Lo-Ammi,

Following your build. I think the colours you chose work very well. But where are the new pics. You are keeping us in suspence as to your progress. [-X

Whatever happened to your Raven, do you still fly her?

Please update.

Hi
I have been procrastinating a bit :oops:
The panel is basically done and I have started working on the inside again...a lot of small tedious jobs in confined spaces and progress is slow.
I will take a few photos again and update
Regards Lo-Ammi

PS I sold the Raven end of last year

:D

Nothing woring with a little bit of procrastination... within limits.
It's always the small things that seem to take up the most time, but it will be rewarding in the end.
Looking forward to some pics when you can.
Good luck...
