Terrific choices for your next build and I'll be front and center for the journey which is always like flying on the Concord. :popcorn:

 

LOL Peter. It should make a really nice model. A little out of the usual. :)

Looking forward to this, haven’t seen one these Trumpy kits in the build stage…… 

They aren't bad kits at all Phil. I built their -3 and it came out nice with no big issues at all. :)

A little bit of progress. The nav chart I found on line. Rescaled it and printed it out. The decal sheet has one but it's pretty poor in my opinion. :)

Nice to see the SBD is underway and scaling down the chart is a nice detail and touch.

 

Thanks Peter. I did that on my -3 build also. Adds a nice touch I think. :)

Absolutely is a nice touch for sure - I'm pretty sure in WWII it was called a plotting board.

 

 

You are correct Peter but the CHART laid on the PLOTTING board. 😄

Looking so good and you're cruising along at your normal speed: always in high gear.

 

Thanks Peter. So far this build is easy peasy LOL. :)

Your progress is amazing and looking mighty good

 

Thanks. It's coming along okay so far but their instructions could be a lot better, especially for the engine mounts and related items. Test fitting is a must for those.
