That looks great, Dan  Smiley

I like the colour on this .... but the faded red esaki on my aged Powermouse has got to go! Is this 'domestic' tissue? ( sorry if you've already said)

Thanks Dan ... would never have thought of Al's Hobbies for tissue. I miss the heyday of trade stands at meetings with Al's stand carrying far more than in this online era.

Nothing's ever easy, is it? Shrunk the tissue on the fuselage and got a starved horse like you wouldn't believe. Tail mount twisted about 5 degrees, too. I really wasn't expecting a problem, given that all the outlines are laminated. I really couldn't live with it; so tissue rear of the cabin is gone while I reinforce, brace and swear. A lot. No; really a lot. And then some more.

Funny you should say that, Dan ... I've had some of my worst curls with laminated outlines.

Glad to hear the Duval is working. I feel your pain... just resprayed the front end of my DH60 and got a bad paint reaction ... calming down with Fullers ESB  Undecided

Hopefully a bit of extra bracing will see the Whimsey straight again

All sorted. Most of the cabin glazing is now on, so not much to do before paint and nailing it all together.

Back soon,

Dan.

Not done much recently, I'm afraid! A combination of despair at being back at work and a killer chest infection which has pretty much robbed me of sleep for the last week.

Back on it now.

"Normal" is very much a relative term, Russ!
