Richard, you need to take more care when on ladders. I had to go up one yesterday and fortunately my knees stayed firm - but I did not much enjoy the experience. Here's wishing you a complete recovery - but sadly it would seem that we will all have to wait for a while before we see more progress on this project.

The Nieuport is really taking shape Richard! The wing and rudder/fin look awesome! Sorry to hear of your Accident. My best for a speedy recovery!

I did some very gentle filling and sanding with the wing clamped in a vice. It has come good

I can't work out how to use a modelling knife and rule with one hand...

I'm going nearly mad with frustration at not being able to continue this at the moment

And much as I want to get on with this, no way am I risking my hand recovering properly

However, I did raid Halfords for a couple of rattle cans of CDL like paints. I may give them a go tomorrow

Remember this?:



The wings are temporarily mounted using brass rods

Great to see you back on this one Richard! The wings look great resting in place.

Really looking forward to seeing this one being completed. We have had to wait, but I am patient because it is going to be worth it.
