Here is my contribution to the memory of David. Once again, blue skies my friend!

I'm certainly going to enjoy following along with this one... looking forward to seeing that color scheme on the model.

Me too.
I heard that it all started when a bloke called Archie Duke shot an ostrich 'cause he was hungry!

Ooh, looking forward to this one also. Great choice of scheme.

However, I will be interested to see how you get on with the Wotan prop. I tried at least three different ways to get the laminations and failed miserably every time! That's why I will stick to schemes with the bolted together prop..... :) Using a ProperPlane prop is cheating btw ;) ;D

Always surprised at the number of schemes on this one given the short service life (Great choice by the way)

Looking forward to this one . . .

Your welcome to my announcement is both flattering and intimidating. Let us see what I will be able to do with this precious kit.

My plan is to order the Kotebi veneers to be cut and I will carve my prop(s). Hope you will not consider it as cheating  ;)

Yes, that's still cheating in my book ;) ;D However, it does take a special skill to carve props, there's no denying that :) I am sure it will look fantastic.

The first step - the interior truss removed from the 3D print tree. The resin is quite brittle but the tree tips touching the kit element are very thin and even if broken, not cut, do not leave the recesses but rather a pin which is easy to remove with a sharp blade. Some touch spots are hard to access with a sanding paper.

I've been worried about getting these parts out of the frame - so thanks Prze for leading the way.
I'll follow with great interest.

It will be really interesting to see this kit come to life in your hands. I don't think I've seen one negative comment about it, but so far it's been very much first impressions, so this might give it a bit more substance. Not that I'm doubting the positive comments!
