Nicely done. The title of this thread caught my attention because I have one of these on the bench just now. It is actually a very old model that I originally built as a kid, probably in the late 1960's. I rediscovered it several years ago in a box under my parents' house and decided to do a nostalgia rebuild, with the benefit of another half Century of modelling skill behind me. With the original tube glue now brittle, it was reasonably easy to break it down into the original kit components and so far I have cleaned up the parts & scratchbuilt a cockpit interior. Although I am only working on it sporadically, I am enjoying the trip down memory lane.

While waiting for parts I decided to detail the engine with a pencil and the front end of the fuselage and hand painted the engine backing and prop
