I’ve started butchering plastic and resin on this one. I want to build the Northwest Airways machine. So far, so good.

UPDATE. Press-fit mock-up. I’ve got the wing/roots, cowling, and vacuform canopy trimmed up for a pretty good fit.

More later.

Adios, Larry.

Using sparesbox Monogram Goshawk motor. The 10-piece resin motor was way too big to fit in the cowling.

More later.

Adios, Larry.

Penultimate UPDATE:

It looks like an airplane.

The kit passenger windows are over a millimeter too wide. I’ll be using Formula 560 Canopy Glue for glazing the passenger compartment.

Landing gear, exhausts, decals, and clearcoat coming up.

Adios, Larry.
