The secret project is undergoing PSR.  It might be a new mould Airfix kit but there are fit issues under the wings.  Possibly my fault but I will blame them as is my wont.  Masking the glazing was a pain given my dislike of masking.

Dragon Rapide has had all the windows masked, some PSR done, a spatectomy performed (I hated doing that but it was neccesary to install floats), and the nacelles attached and awaiting filler.  The centre section of the upper wing forms the cabin roof and will require PSR so I will have to attach it before paint which will make rigging the thing more interesting than doing it my usual way.

But that means you still have them to attach to something else.  :thumbsup:

Perhaps in memory of the late Great Brian da Basher?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

A nice thought but not much survived as they were more a vertical continuation of the nacelle than a separate wheel cowling that could be reused.
