Wing panels and tail/rudder are beautifully painted and weathered! Looking forward to your further progress.

This is moving along beautifully with some really neat and authentic looking painting! I'm enjoying this... ATB, Marc

Sorry for the long time between updates.

I have finally buttoned up the nacelle and installed the Beardmore engine. I have added extra piping in and around the engine based on what I can see in the excellent photos provided with the Wingnuts kit. Fit of the cockpit frame was fairly straightforward apart from the bulkhead behind the cockpit and in front of the radiator. I just could not think of a way to get rid of the join line this creates.

Now I just have some final touches and rigging to add before the lower wings go on.

Thanks for the comments. Lower wings are on now, starting on the upper wings and rigging.

I read an article on fitting the wings that suggested that fitting the upper wing in sections may be an easier way to go so I thought I would give it a go.
