Still plenty of work to do before the 2 main parts get put together.

Got some more done to this one. Body cut down and wing bottom fitted.

The hole in the front will go over the engine, and you can see how it will sit. The wing will also be clipped, and I will make a frame for the rear end.

I also cut off the air intake and will fix that to the side as seen in the photo, a bit late on, because if it was still underneath it would suck up nothing but dirt.

Thanks guy's.
I can't seem to put this one down at the moment. You can now see the general idea of it coming together that I have in my head.

I'm surprised you didn't leave the gun bays in the wings. OK, you would have to move the ammo feeds inboard, but what a frightening street weapon!

Well with Polux cracking on with his build for this GB. I thought I'd best get mine moving again. With the Mustang needing to sit on the Bedford chassis, I needed to make a frame for it. The underside at the front was cut away to fit over the engine top, and a frame for the backend was also made.

I know Polux there were the right number of takers or this GB would not have happened, but like you I'm really enjoying myself with it. And I'm really liking what your doing.

Got a little more done to this one. Added the windscreen, air intake and nose cone. Also added a cover for the drive shaft from the nose cone to the vans drive shaft. I think it's time to add some colour to the main body now.
