If you only knew just how close it has come to that during this "build".

I chose not to set it alight, and was happy enough with it having fallen off the stand twice, and breaking off just about anything that could be broken off! :mad:

I can now report that it is back together, again, and is standing on its own feet. Well wheels actually.

Not quite so burned out looking any more.

Next up stencils and then the markings.....then the IFR probe and the over wings.

The pictures are a bit fuzzy. I have just loaded 100kg lead into the car and have jelly arms!

Well I'm calling this one dead, I mean done! lol It was a close call.

Here is a little teaser, the rest are in the completed section for the SIG's

This poor old girl had a hard life. It looks to me that the kit, bought a few years ago on flea bay was a bitser. I recon the seller had combined a couple of kits and put them in one box as a complete kit. All the parts where there, some of them had a different look and feel to them.

I think I have spent more time repairing and repainting than it took to build and paint it! Still that will teach me not to keep dropping it! Plastic airplanes neither fly or bounce!!!

See you in the Completed section!
