Got some more done to this one. Got all the wing supports built and any gaps filled, that goes with the wings as well. Also fitted the tail section and fitted some spare wings from a Sopwith Camel I did some time ago, and fitted the wheel struts.

I'm really enjoying myself with this build.

Got some more done to this one, I don't think it will be too much longer before the primer gets put on. I need to sort out the wheelwells on the underside of the lower wings. And I'm also on the lookout for two important things for the pigeon catching device.

I'm a bit behind you guys in this GB but I'm making my Panther first... Plenty of time left though ;)
Thanks Jens, and yes you've got the rest of the year to do yours.

Ian - I just love your idea for pigeon catcher!!!
The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it wasn't me who thought of it... :tongue-out:

This is a GB where you really have to dig deep and come up with something unique and true to the show - and I really like it!!! (as long as I get all the medals... hehe...)

And this is a rough idea of what it looks like with them on. Still plenty to do.

Just like Tony I'm nearing the end with his one, just the figures to do and some fine tuning.
