Gotta love it!
Have always loved the Tripe and it has many interesting features that make it comendable for modeling. And so much more character than the Pup. I really like the wide wooden struts!
will be watching with great interest.
Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Is that the pilot that's standing next to it with the hammer in her hand? :) I have one or two pics of the Tripe that's in the RAF Museum - PM me if they'll be of any use.

constructive advice

The first /non never fully trust but verify designs at all times during the construction.

The secondo/ monitor and measure the piece directly on site. ;)

The third/ patches do not undignified.

The fourth /NEVER be afraid to redo a job.

I wanted them to write down here 'on the site because I believe will be useful to everyone, not just us who are building the maxi

thanks @ solitairyman fol us in the building, and give us advice if necessary, we will gladly accept

When you get to a certain point in the construction, working and hard as usual but progress is seen. We're at four wings, one of which is almost complete. Continue the work of strengthening the fuselage and begin to realize the joints. Here are some photos:
