The air to ground exacto knife is a fearsome weapon guaranteed to penetrate any hull...

Looking good.

 :thumbsup:

You made me remember one of the first scenes in Young Frankenstein, when Gene Wilder stabs himself in an anatomy lesson...  ;D

Some more progress, and proof I'm not just building a boat!

Wings and horizontal stabilizers pinned on:





On to getting the wingtip floats pinned on as well.

Well on it's way, can't wait to see the masking come off.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks guys!

There hasn't been much noticeable progress, the wings have been glued on and I'm doing some PSR to get them blended in.  I think I have a good cockpit mask as well.

I've been spending most of my time scribing panel line, and I'm finally finished!  It's now primed and ready to paint.





So now I need to figure our how I'm going to paint it.  Here's my current ideas:



Or this:



Or this:



Or this:



Anyone know Tamiya colors for any of these schemes?

That's looking amazing.  :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! :)
