Like you Tom, I don't mind doing things bit by bit, even if it takes some time to build up everything I need. Transport is my main issue, since being lumbered with the entirety of the joint bank loan since the split, I am somewhat restricted, and can't afford to run a car until its paid off. Bit of a sob story, but there it is!

Scale is the way I am going in RC eventually I think, simply because a lot of it can be acheived with "kitchen table" technology and a little innovation, plus, there are a lot of very nice subjects which would make reasonable models even in a smaller scale if built light.

Most likely won't get too spraying the wings on Sunday. Do have the right wing ready, still have too finish sanding the left wing yet, just a lot of area to cover & sanding it micro smooth avoiding the rivets takes time... but getting there'. Did assemble the rudder & elevators back on the tail section, think they look good,... so far. I did receive my second golf bag in the mail for the cargo area, I like this one, a tad bigger & good scale detail... It all folds up too a compact size as well. it will look good in the cargo area.

Geez Glen,

This model is going to be worthy of it's own 1/4-scale hanger!

Very pretty work.

Beautiful spray job Glenn, and indeed, beautiful work throughout, its thoroughly entertaining (and slightly dispiriting!) to watch it all coming together.

Being somewhat inspired by both these builds, I had a little dig about in some references for something of a similar "feel" but simpler for a dunce like me to put together.

What I found was the Forstner-Wicko GM.1

Ok...daydream over, but really, this is inspirational work by you both, thanks for sharing.

Thanks, man !

Build that sucker. She's a good looking subject for a scale model.

Build it to your level or expertise, and go a notch, or two, higher. You'll enjoy yourself, and learn something along the way.

Either that or something else, even if it takes a couple of years to do.

I figure that a golden age "gentle" flyer is the way to go for a first "proper" scale model, so I'm going through my references and referring constantly to RCG for inspiration and those little "how can I do this?" moments.
