    You can never truly finish a model without Radu's seatbelts and you did an excellent job. The dusting made a difference, they were too new. Prosit, you can now pack your model.

    Managed to fit the doors yesterday night... extremely fiddly job and I almost ruined the paintwork with the glue No 





    Now its just a matter of painting the DF Loop and some other small bits like the canopy release lever.

    However all is not good... in the rush to finish one of the wheels has a very wrong sit and this is painfully evident especially when looking at the plane from the front/rear.  The wheels are resin items and they are stuck to the legs using superglue. Sad   

    Is there any relatively safe way to fix this?

    I only have to re-position the wheel, so if any of you guys can bring it along on wednesday we can assess the situation and fix it if its possible.  Its just a question of correcting the wheel angle with respect to the ground.

    THANKS:cheers:
