Well mancave all back in place, all work has stoped on the plane at the moment as i have no paints as yet, so i have started on the base.

The subject will be in a marina for an overhaul.

The engine bay will be all open with the prop removed, there will be men working on the engine and in the cockpit.

The white squires on the base are the flotations for the walkways, i have left a gap for the sea wall.

Looking good John. Just one question the wing on the right appears smaller than the one on the left. They should be both be the same size.

All looking good to me John the only thing I would say is the machine gun is a tad too silver looking but maybe you haven't added a wash to darken it down a bit. Looking forward to further updates.

I think that cockpit is very nicely done John. May no tbe exact shades of whatever it is supposed to be but it looks the bees knees.
