RFDS - I hadn't thought of that.  I am planning to build a series of Flying Doctor whiffs.

I really really love this idea.  It's coming to life very nicely too.  That's one of the things I love about WHIF modelling, you can take something well-known and just turn it ever so slightly sideways... and then it becomes new and awesome.
Thanks!

Thanks Greg.

I'm not touching it for a few more days now as I want the yellow paint to fully gas out and harden before I handle it.
Next job is making a door.

Made a door today.
Also painted some tape to use to make canopy framing.

I put the transfers on this last week.  While handling it I realised the yellow (enamel) paint hadn't fully gassed out and was slightly tacky.  So its been in my dehydrator since then so it can harden up.

Very nice! Reminds me that I have also a kind of Skyraider passenger plane on my idea/project list!  :rolleyes:

Over the last week i've been  touching up the green & white chequers that form part of Frankston Sky Cabs livery.  They get a bit blurry around the edges where I cut them to fit as the water can get under the clear and affect the ink.
Having finished that I cleared over the transfers today.  During the process of putting on the transfers I managed to detach Susan S from her seat at which point, so disturbed by Diana's leers, she leapt to the floor and ran off with the spiders.

Maybe she's decided to become a disciple of the Spider Queen, Lloth.
