Well come tomorrow I will have the A6 Intruder and will at least start it for this GB but as it the first aircraft built in years, and I have the Eduardo interior upgrade I don’t imagine finishing it within 6 months but I will keep it progressing along with other builds.

Good luck to everyone

For anyone interested, the latest FineScale Modeller is a Vietnam special - all builds in the magazine (armour/aircraft/ships/figures) are from that conflict.

Right I'm willing to put aside the Pearl and the M-ATV and take part in this, but it has been along time since I built an aircraft and never one of this detail and to make matters worse never one I have to upgrade the tub on.

Now as some of you know I do have a little issue ;) , so I'm looking for one kind soul to at least give me some guidance on what is the best way to approach this with build and paint order, etc. If I get a volunteer then I'll give it a bash.

Where do I start ;) lol

That can have two meaning here and both apply.

I think I’ll open a build log at weekend with the instructions and extras and then that will make it easier to chime in as literally unsure where to start this build and when do I paint. Want to do most of it with airbrush and not go back to the hairy stick.
