Hi everyone,

This is where I am at at the moment. The main body is mostly foiled, but still needs to be sanded and finished.















Still got a long way to go, but it's starting to look like something at last.

All the best to everyone at HS!

I think a bright yellow tail and some green stripes would really look good on that NMF.

These shots made my day. Thank you for sharing and I really look forward to seeing more.






(P.S. -- not kidding on the yellow/green remark. If you haven't decided on a scheme yet I can get you some 447th reference shots of some interesting planes from Rattlesden)

so I'll probably use them. The more I look at the yellow tailed planes though, the more I like them. If you do have some good shots that I could use to make a dio, and decals are available, I may change my mind! The a/c would have to be with the staggered full glass waist windows, old style tail and have had it's radio gun removed, but I guess that was fairly common.

Thanks for you comments

regards

Steve
