Thanks Chris.  He was a Springer, so a good size for a dog, not too small.  Not pedigree AFAIAW (Mum isn't into all that kennel club business) but not crossed with anything.

Next stage on the Breguet is to fit all the little rectangular windows into the fuselage.  The first two have sat slightly proud and have needed adjusting.  I have no reason to think the rest will be any different.

Major construction on the CR-32 is completed...

... and i've got the rolling chassis of the next '60 Chevy ute completed.  This one has small block power and will be carrying a stepside tub.  It's lowered at both ends.

SERIOUS wheels/tyres on that Stepside Fred.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

CR 32's looking good mate  :thumbsup:

Springers are lovely dogs, as you say just about the right size and very intelligent.

Resin copies of Otaki originals.  The guys at www.thepartsbox.com made me four sets a while back using borrowed wheels as the masters.  I believe these are my last set.
Original versions are very hard to find now.

Thanks Chris.  CR-32 is all over white undercoat now.

The Breguet fuselage makes me think of a sperm.

Today was a public holiday but i've had a nagging headache all day so I didn't do too much.

I painted the parts of the fuel truck not already blue or red (all the parts not beneath the Breguet in the photo above),  I masked the Breguet glazing and primed it (have I mentioned I have masking?), and I masked and began painting the CR-32.

It strikes me that had I not started this then it would have been a contender for the Captured GB as the People's Front of Catalonia (not the Catalonian People's Front - splitters!) would have captured it from the fascists.

I'm not surprised you've got a headache after that comment  :angel:
