Thank You Walt, yes it was purgatory in there.
He`s arrived and is trying out his position. Apparently the early Radars required very little light to be seen properly.We will see him through the perspex frangible hatch and side windows.

Hey! Happy Birthday!
Great!
My Canberra is waiting for new mision, in the same place that you..in my LIving!..your pic with the Canberra siting beside the wall, very similar to mine...I did the 6th flight, painted an all things onboard an it seems to be underpowered...so i am waiting a new couple of edf's...i'll se what happens...
it woud be great if we could fly togheter the Canberras!!..the problem now is to get some dolars for the trip...(our economy is not in a good moment, we canot import anything, things costs so much, and if you want to travel you get in a lot of economy controls and problems...) but i dont say no!

Shure! You are the depron champion! of course! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! (not from Liverpool...but not so far away..)

Back from a period of illness (Was it the cake or the Whiskey?)
Made up a cockpit and began fitting it in the offset port position.

Too true. Imagine being launched incarcerated in there, off Ark Royal in the Winter in the North Sea, no wonder they drank Rum every day.
Painted rear canopy, fitted rain removeing system , observer side window, and frangeable escape hatch.

This is incredible! See i try to tell the fella down at the field that depron is a viable build material. I just love it.

Have you found this site yet?

If you haven't then that aught to get you through the build.

Keep er lit!

Hi Domll .Been living in the camper for ages.Even the food cupboard has glue & Paint in it. Great to see your more conventional build flowing allong. Much more scale than mine.
Thanks for the link Shane. The top views are helpful.
Completed upper decking.
