Looks great, Paul. Drew sure knows how to keep it in the frame (and focused) too.

Thanks, y'all!

Steve, I'll pass the kudos on to Drew for the video work.

Fuzz--i definitely did consider whipping up some floats for this bird. Early on, I planned to add hardpoints to this proto so that she could be a floatplane proto, too. But that went by the wayside somewhere along the way.

Here's some photos for anyone motivated enough to bite that subproject off

An old programmer's quote comes to mind - once you finish the first 90%, there's just the final 90% to go.

Lol—I never claimed that the model would be done. I just said I would be done.

Heya, Jim—one thing I didn’t mention was that the front slider details were more to keep the canopy from getting knocked off than for scale fidelity. The canopy corners hang out so far I figured something bad would happen eventually, and if that meant a canopy failure in flight I’d probably never find it again.

Wow. Where is that located. I thought there were no surviving TBDs.
