Life certainly has some interesting turns that it throws at you , since my darling wife passed away ,I sort of went into a numb period followed by is that it ??? But now months later I've met a wonderful woman that's picked me up and put a smile on my dial once again .She's been fantastic and such a lovely person . I'm now feeling at ease with myself and ready to move along and get back to some serious model building so 2015 look out another big PSS ship will be born from my work shop The Friends I've made through this hobby over 40 odd years is testimont to how great this hobby is and if everyone had this sort of hobby there would be a lot less anger in the world .
Peace and good cheer everyone and have a very merry Christmas

When I started this project I wasn't a real fan of the Hudson ,but it's shape and style have grown on me very quickly its probably been the addition of the engine nacelle's that I really like as its starting to actually look like a Hudson .

My Hudson build is coming together quickly , My thinking of the complexity of this build has proven wrong ,and in fact its quite a simple aircraft to build . There are a few tricky bits but you know you made an error pretty quick
Update*****added another photo first time self supporting its own wings
