Hi this is going to be my entry for Peter's GB the Curtiss Tomahawk.

Starter Set.


Paintng instructions.


Parts.


Instructions and decals


Paints and the hairy stick which is better than most of mine.


Prop assembly all cleaned up.


Fuselage, the office al painted and a bit off detail added.


Instrument panel, seat and cockpit/joystick all painted.




This is how I will be applying the glue to the surfaces with the edge of my scalpel blade.


Cleaned up tailplane parts.


Applied instrument decal, fitted cockpit floor to lower wing.


Assembled the two fuselage halves.


Mockup only.


Thank you for looking in now off to play in the park to finish building camp and a tree house :tongue-out2:.

Will do bit more tomorrow after school and scouts if dad doesn't finish it first.

Pete.

Hi finished the stage.

Assembled the fuselage and lower wing halves in the afternoon because we had to come home early from the park, the big boy turned up
and stole our sweeties and smashed up ourcamp the little rotters.


Left over night to close gap at wing roots.


Fitted lower engine cowling.




Fitted top engine cowling, tail wheel assembly and undercarriage assembly.


All done will let dry overnight then on to the painting stage.








Thank you for tuning in and having a look.

Pete (age 12 3/4)

Hi Pete
Looking good. Great progress.
Shame about the bully at the park. Next time wait until he's playing football and let his bike tyres down.
