2010 - 3

Not quite halfway though the year and here I am entering more stuff!
The Brisfit is close to finished - it is certainly flyable but as is my policy, it should be completely finished, thoroughly documented and photographed BEFORE flying. A single mishap on a maiden flight could render the whole job worthless from the designer's point of view - Peter might never speak to me again if there were no finished pictures
Th only details remaining are around the cockpits - some detail is needed as these areas are big and highly visible - a Lewis gun, instrument panels, windscreens etc plus a pilot and gunner - all in 1/7 scale so nothing ready made will do!

I had a call for help from Peter Rake asking if I'd make a glass-fibre spinner for another prototype builder and that took a week or so of time - I hope it works Sperry The Carl Goldberg Ultimate now only needs a fuselage and no progress on the SPAD. With all this stuff unfinished there was only one course of action - buy a 60" Hurricae kit from Charlie at Manzano Laser - just as a diversion from other pressing issues. This is a fun build and I'll treat it as such - although I do have several other 'fun build' gathering dust on the shelf - a Bleriot XI, an Avro Avian conversion, a F/F Walrus, and a SPAD. Ah well, variety is the spice of life and at the current rate of model disposal (and atrition) I'll need some extras!
