Dear Dave,
As you can see from the photos I’m getting closer to the end. I was hoping to have the model finished by Christmas but I’m not going to make it. I keep adding features I hadn’t planned on plus family distractions.For transporting and storage convenience I’ve made the wings removable and the main landing gear unplug from the wings.I’m not yet finished skinning those areas that were metal covered on the Mk I version (w/Watt’s 2-blade propeller) and I’m also skinning the leading edges of the fin and stabilizer as per the original.There are many items yet to go, such as the exhaust pipes, cockpit, sliding canopy, carburetor intake, but all-in-all I’m having a lot of fun doing it. All of these items will be done in wood. The only plastic item is the pilot’s seat and landing gear covers.I belong to a local IPMS chapter and the club had me set up a special display of the model at one of our chapter meetings. The model will be featured at our September contest meeting.- Richard Kessler, Cincinnati, OH
