That is some impressive work, Craig!  Hope you have a big tube of aluminum polish for later.

Thanks Gazza! Yeah polishing is going to be bit of a mission, especially handling it so it doesn't end up covered in fingerprints!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Not sure what crack Dami87 is on, but I'm still continuing progress on the panel work. I've pretty much finished the LH side as much as I can, now working my way forward on the right. As I move forward, I'm also now able to tackle some more complex and challenging pieces such as the radio room fairing and turtle deck.

Enjoy!

Thanks Gaz and Peter!

Progress has slowed somewhat recently, but is still going on slowly. I'm hoping to average a panel or so a day, although it doesn't always work out that way!

Thanks as always for your continued encouragement and interest :)

It's been a while since I posted here. Just thought I'd let you guys know the project is still ongoing :)

I'm currently working to finish the bomb bay, and once that's done I can finally get the tail on. 

Enjoy the pics :)

Hi Craig,

some 5 years ago I was discussing your build with Wolf and we both came to mutual conclusion, that this is a long run project, but the result will be no less , than museum quality build. It's happening :)

Thanks very much Martin! Definitely a huge compliment coming from both of you :). Amazing how time flies.... I'd say this may very well come close to a 10 year project. There's always things I could have done better, but it's taught me some valuable lessons along the way.....

Thanks Harv. I've got to admit I'm pretty sloppy and sporadic posting on here, but I'm glad you're enjoying the updates!
