More work today saw me get the Starboard wing nearly done.
Lots more work than you'd think on those simple blade flaps the Hurricane uses
couldn't help but do some bench flying this afternoon and got some photo's
to put into the build thread and a few for my blog. Actually got the the L/edge
shaped as well now

Now that the centre section is part of the airframe I just had to mock it up with the belly fairing and air scoop looks pretty Hurricany now I think.

It looks like for 2 steps forward you get one step back , but really its not the case . Building these models you find that there is a point you reach where most of the upfront visible stuff is done ,but then theres all the fiddly bits that need to make the whole shooting match work as an aeroplane . so Ive been busy doing the fiddly stuff and here some shots just to keep my blog up to date.
I hope these entries are helpful to some who may try scratch building.

Got the results of my operation back yesterday ,and it looks like I'm going to be around for awhile yet the word benign has never meant as much as it does now.The weight has been lifted ,now back to building and flying.
