Hey, no fair, that's cheating!

Seriously, fine work on a complex subject in a fiddly scale. If it is driving you buggy, just put it in a dust proof box and go build some kit you have been meaning to get to. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how well that trick works when you pick the Fee back up again.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Evening All,

Thank you so much Terri, Ken, Richie, Andreas, SMPerry, Rick and William for your supportive comments. These have certainly helped me to keep going with this model because at times I have thought about consigning it to the shelf of doom permanently, which would be a first for me since I restarted modelling. However I have persevered and this is the result:



I have finished the painting, rigged it with 40 SWG copper wire, added the horizontal tail surface, propellor, tail skid, Lewis gun and wheels. I will post more pictures in the completed models section later.

Thanks for looking.

Stephen.
