Astonishing Work.

When you start your next project, please post your progress pics [-o< [-o< [-o< .

If you can you are more than welcome to bring your work along to the next GRSM meeting which will be on the 25th of January 2020 at the Military History Museum, it would be great to see the models.

That would be great, unfortunately I live in Cape Town, and I presume the meeting is in Johannesburg, pity, but if any of you find yourselves in Cape Town let me know.

Control surfaces are installed as well as the canopy, hope you guys enjoy the pictures, this has taken me 11.5 Months so far, a total labour of love. The Matra 550 missiles are attached with prestik, just to see what it will look like, they will have to go, I am busy scratch building a pair of Kukri missiles, the elevators are also temporarily attached with prestik, I will glue them into position later. There is still more detail to add, I would say another 2 Months left in the build then time to start with the Impala build.............

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

An excellent build! =D> =D>

I like the nose-wheels that have some life and not the "normal" straight forward attitude.

Presume that you have a vac-form machine?

Balsa wood is very nice to use for forming.

Well done!

Geoff
