Hello everyone.
The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter. Covering is now down to the ailerons and the elevators. Painting is almost finished, just have to finish the fuselage and the canopy frame. Hopefully the canopy will be done soon. I would like to have the canopy fitted but not attached to the frame before I paint it. 101 other little jobs to finish as well but we're getting there. Cheers

Hi,
Here are another two. I couldn't resist putting some of it together this afternoon. The tail parts were still a bit sticky, so left them in the shed. Wasn't really sure about the dark red but it 's growing on me.All the moving parts are ready for hinges to be glued in. That will happen over the next couple of days

Wow, look at that. Cliff has straightened the photos and made me a canopy. Your a legend mate, thank you. Your efforts will be much appreciated by me and hopefully many more.
Cheers.
Lawrie.
