Thanks Brad C,
Because of my collection of the Hasegawa kits I like to call "Box Art & Font" I have plenty of, not necessarily old crap kits but dated kits perfect for whiffing (alright, so some of them ARE crap as well).

Here it is with two shades on.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

You're right, I love all them old kits. Nothing better than picking up a mess of, say, 12 1/72 kits from the 70's and 80's for $40 or something wherease that gets me ONE of my stupid airliners a lot of the time.  ;D

Ooooooh, that's looking neater by the day.  :thumbsup:
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! :)

Well, now you've gone and not only made it aesthetically appealing but functional to boot!

Sorry.  I'll have to do something about that...

A good day in the shed today.
Progress on the Sea Witch.
Masked and put silver car paint on the Analogue.  When I build the second one I shall have to remember to wash the sprues as the tape removed chunks of paint right down to the bare plastic. 
Cleared the Currawong preparatory to transfers.

Currawong is coming along nicely, especially now she has her transfers.

Indeed, but the Currawong is my favorite! :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:
I'd thought of giving the 104 new wings but with a different layout. The original ones were so short that, IMO, it made the plane ugly but you hit the nail right on the head.
