I really enjoyed working on this one, I think it is the first Aeroclub kit I've actually put together.  All of the white metal parts required minimal clean up and fit nicely.  I used the decals for a 17 Squadron machine.

Lovely work Dan - nice smooth finish and beautifully rigged as always. Well done. And two Woodcocks in a month!! and different squadrons as well. How did your exhausts go underneath - I had a a hell of a time getting them in the right position.

Thanks Graham, it's the month of the Woodcock!  I bet there haven't been very many shown here over the years, it's not exactly a "pretty" airplane.  The shape did grow on me as I worked on it though.  I didn't have too much trouble with the exhausts but I drilled out their mounting points in the bottom of the white metal cowl so that they were a nice tight fit.  I realize they should actually mount to the exhaust collector but I planned to add that last so I went with Aeroclub's way of doing things.

Dang it!  I want to see you botch one just so the rest of us can feel better...;-)

Way cool Woodcock.  I love the delicate paint and neat markings work.  Top shelf, old bean!

Thanks Dan!  I hate to admit it but I botch just about everything at some point, I'm just getting good at fixing things.  Notice that you never see any of my attempts at weathering here though!
