Uncle duties still allow for transfers to be put on in as it can be dine in the kitchen.

I took this pic half way through applying the windows so you can see the difference.  Because I somehow managed to print the "overglazing" smaller than the previous windows I had to cut them out individually.
They look better, but don't stand out as much.

That's looking VERY good Fred.  :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! :)

Old Wombat, you are right.  Cultures change.  Guys like me in their 50s and 60s will usually chuckle at that line.  Hell, I'm old enough to remember when drunk driving would get a chuckle.
The Leng Plateau is lovely this time of year

I installed the crew and started painting the canopy framing today.  I had to stop painting the canopy framing when it was time to go to a friends house to have lunch, drink too much red wine and celebrate the moon landing by watching The Dish.
Here are my crew.

Looking at the pics I see I have forgotten to paint their cap badges and buttons.

Thanks Chris.

Canopy attached.
Wings attached.

I have just realised that despite mentioning it above I neglected to paint the crews cap badges and buttons before gluing the canopy.
Bollocks.

Just one more thing for the list of what has gone wrong on this build...

However, today I glued the tails on and assembled the rotor head.  Undercarriage next and then its done (although given what's gone before i'll prolly drop it before then).
Here it is wth the first official appearance of Scale Reference Lego Riot Squad Officer.
