Hi to all my friends, after some days off for an heart problem that required a coronarography, the problem is over and I'm back at my modelling workbench .

I've found a way to rescribe the auxiliary air intakes on the engines cowling and now I'm halfway on such a work .







Now I hope to move along smoothely !!! on this model .

... Good to see you back at the bench too...

I love using Dymo label tape for etching and as cutting guides... Great stuff!

I hope we get to see some more work on your Cobra Ball...

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.

Aren't heart problems fun. I had a quintuple bypass two years ago.

Thank you very much Jim,

you are right about heart problems, me too have 3 bypass and 4 stents installed in my coronary vessels, but now the blood flow is normal so I'll return to normal life and ...... modelling !!!

I did a fair amount of modeling when I was off work for ten weeks. Good luck and take care (don't cough without the pillow).

Reminds me of when my dad use to take my brother and I to work, and check out the 707's and 720B's. Very Nice, and looking fwd to seeing you 135 when done. Keep the great work, and hope you get back to 100 percent soon
