Thanks for all your comments, hopefully I can at least sell a dozen or so! Update on the project, masters are now finished and moulds being made, should have some test casts by early next week. Looking good for being ready for sale at Coventry.

Got my first sample and it looks great, typical of Paul's work, no pour stubs to remove and brilliant surface finish. Unlike most stuff he does, the nose has been cast hollow, I will try and post some pictures tomorrow. Price should be just under the 15 mark, production moulds being made this week.

It is odd thats for sure. Paul did a hollow cast nose and the fit is very good, I have not actually glued it on, the fit is snug enough to hold in place (the cockpit and bulges are held by a small amout of super glue).
