You've done yourself proud, Dave.  What a beautiful model.
It's been a very enjoyable and informative build, and I for
one cannot wait for your next one!  Have a nice cold milk or
something appropriate ;)...you've earned it.

Cheers
Ernie :)

If I were close enough, I'd insist you have a dram of the finest I've got. (Single Malt that is, and I brought some real spectacular samples back from Scotland in May) Dave, you should be tremendously proud of this build. I'm really looking forward to the final photo shoot. Incredible workmanship, incredible detail, and an incredible Build. Salut!!
Cheers,
Lance

Cheers Lance,
I've a wee bottle or two of the golden nectar in the cupboard, so I'll
have one (any bloody excuse for a Jock) and toast yer' health laddie ;)
Plus its winter here in good old New Zealand, so its cold enough
(Another lame excuse eh?)

Thanks mate  8) As they say down here 'Box of fluffy ducks!'
(They're mental by the way)

Pics coming next week . . .  G'day Lance

All the best

Dave

Slangevar ( to good health; to your health.
a salute with raised glasses in Scottish Gaelic) to all of you guys.
Cheers Mark . . . . I had one last night, but I'd better have another
tonight to toast your healths', and to make sure the damn stuff
hasn;t gone off ;)
Will get my act together this weekend and try for some decent
photos, so they should be up by Monday. Have a great weekend one and all
and thank you for your support. Now, at least in the interim, I can spend more
time looking through all your stuff . . .Which will be good  8)

Cheers
All my very best from NZ

Hi Lance

Thinking of either a Fokker dvii (never done a german one yet) or the FE2, cant make up my mind.
Any suggestions are welcome  8)

Looks very serious! I am "vertically challenged " as well; used to be over 6 ft. tall....................."G' Forces are merciless over time!! On the brighter side, a low profile often keeps you out of view, and trouble!

Dave!  I'd no idea you were a bleedin' film star!  And to think, all this time I've been hobnobbing (cyberly) with a celebrity.  I'm all aflutter.  I've seen the film.  Now I'll have to rent it again.
Cheers,
Bud

A stunning build Dave, and one that is sure to draw a lot of ooohs and ahhhs.
