Thanks Bud and Stephen!  So here is a bit more...

The picture tells the story.  I just need to paint the struts and then start rigging.



Tomorrow I'll shoot to install the landing gear and she's well on the way!

Thanks for looking...

Ha!  Beautiful, but so tiny, Dan!  I don't know how you
teeny modelers do such wonders in such a small scale.  Whatever
the reason, don't change a thing, my friend.  It's breathtaking!

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Hi Ernie...

Yup...they are small but it has it's advantages.  I really have trouble finding space for my WNW Snipe but this little guy will fit right under the wing of my Heinkel!!  ;)

Thanks for the kind words.  I hope to get lots more done today as I'm off for the rest of the week!

Cheers,

Dan

Another absolute little gem in the making, Dan. Like Ernie I can only wonder at what you "Braille-Scale" Guys can create in such small subjects. I really like the colour scheme as well, nicely done all over!
Cheers,
Lance

Gorgeous work Dan! The construction and painting/decaling is exceptional! I am with the others in constantly being amazed at what you 1/72nd scale Modelers achieve...and a VAC to boot  :o

You know guys...the other nice thing about 1/72nd is that you can sort of "hint" at the detail and your eye fills it in!  Thanks for the encouragement.  I'm really liking this little Snipe  8)

Cheers,

Dan

All,

I got most of the rigging in place and did some touch up painting too.  Still a few more things to rig like the control surfaces but I think she'll be done tomorrow or very close!




More tomorrow and thanks for looking!

You have made quick work of this one and she looks gorgeous. As always I have enjoyed watching your processes!

Dan I am having problems with your photos - I cannot see them. This is most frustrating as I am sure that the model looks really good!

Hi Stephen and Borsos!

Take a look over in the completed model area (second page, I think?) and you can see it in all its glory (ha!).  Not sure what's up here but likely a Photobucket situation...

Thanks for the interest!  More vacs soon.
