Shock,Nigel does a plane - it's been about 30 years since doing a bird and it is an uphill struggle!

 Since my strokes they wiped out my dexterity and it shows...

 

Anyway..

 

 

After two coats of brown,if you dont see it again the paint went wrong!

Will build most anything,love American cars muscle etc.Britishvehicles are a buzz too,trucks are great - want to do a jet truck,building parts up...

The brown is much better now after a few more coats,decided to do the underside a light grey instead of the yellow on the box art - no way am I brushing yellow!

The demarcation line came out nicely with only a light touch in required.

That is nice. What a lot of brush work but it all turned out well, especially the freestylin'. I have done one biplane and will probably never do another one but I did enjoy doing it. Breaks up the car routine as it were. You're right; that is a funny reg.

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.

Got the rigging done with the supplied wire,being short sighted (in extremis...) it was a case of drop a bit of wire,gregiries on find the wire,drop it again,gregorie back on etc etc.....

 

Still it looks fine!
