I think Chris meant to type "P.I.T.A.", lol

Yes and no. We quite often drop the "the" in this part of the world.

Teach me to simply assume things about language - apologies.

Haven't read any Solzhenitsyn for a very, very long time and I wasn't aware of that one. Cheers Tophe  :thumbsup:

Sanding again, putty again...


Sometimes, but only sometimes PSR can be strangely relaxing if you get into a rhythm with it.
With a mask on my face I do not breath easily and it is not comfortable... :-\ :unsure:

Next sanding, and the result is almost acceptable: (I may go on perhaps)

I run out of sly blue paint finishing my TF-51D model recently, so I am using the paint inside the P-51D Heller kit, and the "Matt Trainer Yellow" seems good for a weird thing with kinda wings (not an airplane exactly)... I am starting the paint step:

Close to completion. I will let the legs and "wings" black, paint the canopy black (except yellow frames).

Thanks ericr, you know: even if I don't pay a ericr-Copyright, this model is very inspired by your collection "airplanes/animal/machines/tools mixes", so inspiring!
