Thats looking great Roo. Can you also make them in red. :lol:

I think at a later date many modelers would like a step by step instructional thread on the highs and lows of pulling your own canopies.

Looks brilliant like it was said earlier a pointer to some topics on vac forming would be great.

Superb build

Roo, well done this build is turning into a lovely model. The added bonus is you will end up with a model with a superb flight performance at a fraction of the cost of a European glass ship. Regards John.
