  1. Heres a few images of the Ho229 at both Silver Hill facility and Udvar Hazy PRU. Hope some of these images will be helpful. Early 2012 the Ho229 being prepped at the Silver Hill facility for move to Udvar Hazy Preservation Restoration Unit (PRU). Note white shrink poly protecting open areas. Wing Root, photo taken from Observation Level with "big" lens. Wing trailing edge. The laminated birch clearly "ungluing" due to aging. Wing trailing edge. Carefully being placed on mount at Silver Hill facility. Securing the nose gear to the mount.
  2. excellent work Jeroen. you are nailing the look.
  3. Hey Martin. Got your msg. Have not been to Post to get estimated ship. I hope to get to Post this weekend. Stay tuned.
  4. Hey Martin. Will be on the bench in a few days. Goal is to finish by 20 April. I am currently wrapping up my 1:72 190 and F16. Will post WIP and final at later date. Thanks Harv. This is a build with plenty of angst. Have a Mk.II, no hurry to start. This sucked the mojo out of me a few times. I'm bringing her back to bench n a few days. Prime and paint is all that's left to do.
  5. Send me your address and email. I'll get estimate to you. Best - Rick
