Hi Gary! That's looking pretty exceptional and the rigging is just fine! I hope you finish it soon - it's beautiful now and will be even better! Regards, Marc

Thanks, Marc. It is rather interesting in a dirty and beaten up sort of way.;D  It just rather caught my attention 'way back in the 1970's when I did a model of the same a/c in 1/72nd scale. Things have surely changed in the last 40-odd years!  8)

Well, Gentlemen, I'm pleased to report that D4545/17 is now complete and has taken up residence in my display cabinet. Sixteen months is a long time but it was time well spent as a Memorial to Des, as I noted on page one of this thread. I can't enter the current Memorial build as I started this build so long ago. Accordingly, I've posted several images on the "Construction Completed" in case any Forumites might want to have a look.

Thank you all most sincerely for your assistance and patience over the past several months. I most truly appreciate all of the comments, suggestions and visits I received.  8)

Cheers, All!

Gary

Hello, Rick, and thanks for visiting. Thanks also for your kind remarks: I very much appreciate them! The build was certainly long enough (!) but I'm happy that it worked out well, thanks in no small part to visits and suggestions, comments and critiques of many Forumites, all of which were welcome indeed. Best of luck to you with your current and future builds!  8)
Cheers!
