Progress so far. It's difficult to see with all the cowlings on but I did add wiring, etc. Now I'll start on the wing mid-section.

Looking great, John!

Let me know when you’re placing your next mass order, I’ll buy stock.

I’ve bought 10 Junkers D.1s two different times, but they were giveaways to grow a brand, notto start my own Staffel!  LOL

Well done, sir!  Well done!

Thank you Gaz. I have a printed deck that looks pretty good. I'll have to check on getting another. :)
