Looking great, I like the blue colour as well. I got the Late version as well, the only reason I picked it is for that unusual wood ammunition "cabinet"! The instructions and details will help the Roden version as well, I guess :)

"Others have flown through this kit so I know it is simply my mediocre skills at fault."

Rick, I have finally got around to reading through this thread after being absent from the forum for several weeks and I read this!!!! Now I do not like to do this as I retired nearly a decade ago, but I have to put my teacher's hat on just this once and reprimand you for writing such nonsense: there is absolutely nothing that is remotely mediocre about your modelling skills: we all make mistakes - so what? Making mistakes was one of the few things that I was good at teaching!!

Lecture over, I return to being an observer of other modeller's wonderful efforts, yours being no exception. This is going to be an interesting thread with two contrasting kits. I am really waiting to see how you tackle the aliminium dope finish on these models - I have never been able to do that convincingly so I always avoid it.

Thanks Stephen, both for the "Lecture" and the comment! Here are some shots of my latest progress on the 17. Next up tying all of the rigging together and adding the seat.

Thanks Amigo. I took your advice from elsewhere and scraped the paint from the outer frames.

So I have gone from what seemed to be an interior that was taking forever to this. The rear fuselage is assembled and mounted and test fitting of the side panels shows just a bit of care needed. I also have decided to do N.1950 without the clear panels. Regarding that airframe I filled the holes for the elevator control lines as supplied and reversed them per the original.
