I'm pulling up my old rock'in chair to enjoy you build. That's some list of AM you've got there.

Also took notice at how organized your workbench is.

Terri,
And I thought that I was neat and organized, but certainly not compared to you.

BTW, is anyone else have issues logging on? yesterday afternoon was a nightmare. I finally gave up until today.

hi Joel , I guess I got from my child hood . My Dad was that way and if our rooms weren't cleaned right it would get torn apart and one would have to start from scratch .

Yesterday morning I wasn't able to but by the afternoon everything was back up and running .


Spent the weekend so far getting in some airbrushing . All parts the go inside the fuselage have there base coat of colours on and detail painting and PE parts are up next . I did add a bit of wiring here and there in the pit and tail wheel housing .

Yes, Joel, me too. Nowhere, no Kitmaker, no Aeroscale, no nothing. I always had the notice coming up that there was no link to the database. I believe Jim has taken the forum offline for some maintenance. In the evening I could visit the side again.

Have a nice Sunday!

Detailing painting is pretty much done . There will be a few bits here and there , for me there always is ...

I still have the wiring of the batteries to do , this will be done once they have been fixed in place . Now comes the fun part ....adding the devils detail ( PE )
