Not much to show just been sanding and filling sanding and filling, the seams on the rocket sides. I’m not too keen on the new formula Squadron fillers.

Ian,
I wasn't impressed with the new fillers either. But I found if you stand them on the cap for a few days the consistency improves a lot.

Hi Ian
This is really coming together now. I expect you're really keen to get the iconic black and white finish on this now.
Looking really good. Blast off in t-minus....!
Cheers
Paul
