I'm having fun with this old kit. I have added the Vector R-1340 Engine and scratch-built the landing flap detail, added plumbing to the wheel well and rebuilt the prop hub. Although the cockpit is hidden by masking right now, I added wiring, levers, switches and scratch-built seat belts.

It sure is bright yellow!

That is coming along nicely. It sure is yellow! I have the Italeri one in 1/48. I would like to do a Portugese one someday.

I like that little kit. For me the fit was really good, and it was fun to build. Looks like you are having a blast with it.

look forward to seeing the finished project!
