Well this might be the Weakest update I have ever done  :o All I have accomplished is painting the canopy frames. Sort of waiting on Rowans generous replacement of the markings I destroyed  8)

Thanks for your continued support Robin! I have tried to stop being a "Slacker" today and worked on applying more of the markings  8)

I have some pictures for you

The nosewheels are easy to photograph, the main undercarriage isn't easy at all and I failed on intakes as all the aeroplanes have protection bungs. I do have a picture of the front of an engine though, I'm wondering how much of that can be seen up the pipe







I have several more

I also found this:

Which suggests there is a large wedge that covers the ancillaries on the front of the engine

No problem, it is nice to have a reason to visit that museum. I spent a happy half hour in the cockpit of the Vulcan and picked up some Profile publications too
