Thanks guys! These kits are a lot of fun to build and nicely detailed. The only problem is the windows. Way too thick to be in the open position and the frame lines are very poorly demarcated. You also have to scratch build the gun port for a SAAF version which can be a pain in the rear!

Looking good mate,

Maybe just do a quick wash on the gear, to pick out the oleos etc...

Very nicely done CP! Beautifully done!

Anyone have a spare harvard kit lying around that they would be willing to part with?

Standing applause for Chopper Pilot! =D> =D> =D>

AT6C, if the Harvard Club can have a color scheme like Nellie's I can't see why this scheme can't be considered [-X :lol: :lol:

Thx Rickus, haven't been to hobby shops yet, just places like Reggies and toys'rus. Currently in Cape Town, will have a look around here.

Hi Guys, this GB seems to have been winding down with most builds very nicely completed. Shat we call this GB "at an end" , or are there any straglers ?
Go look at the general section for next year's GB's and please comment or make sugestions.

To all who participated in this GB =D> =D> =D>
