    I hope this isn't too far along to join this group build. The fuselage is assembled with one lower wing attached. I think I can just finish it by the end of August.


    It's 1/72 scale and I want to make it with a black cowl with a white grimace on it. I made seat belts from masking tape and bits of BMF. Also I tried simulating the stitching on the fuselage seam from styrene. I followed photos from a magazine about using a photo-etched kit. I ended up with fewer stitches!

    Great work Neil. The stitching on the underside is a nice detail addition.
