Looking good - I don't see the 'horrible mess' of the canopy. Like Leif said - this is a very nice tribute to the beginnings of card modelling, and you are definitely doing it justice

Got the extended wheel fairings on the wing centre section and the outboard spars mounted. I found it necessary to curve the formers under the wheel fairings inward. This made it easier to form the curvature of the wheel fairings. It also gave nice support to it.

The wheel hubs caught me off gaurd with one of the hubs being of considerably smaller diameter than what is on the wheel and one larger. Closer examination of the instructions shows this to be so. Looks as though the larger hub is on the free side of the gear. I believe the smaller disc is to be attached to the gear (part #23) as oppsed to having it lie against the wheel former which is located in the centre. The instructions are not clear on this, but this is how I intend to do it.

I was looking at the picture of the completed model that leif attached earlier in this thread, and I have come to the conclusion that I cut the smaller hub to this size by mistake. :(

It seems as though the smaller hub was only a drawing detail within a larger diameter. I have enough spare on the sheets to cut two new hubs however, so the disater is averted. :o

I am very happy to see that it turned out so well; really beautiful. This goes both for you, your build, and the design. Great to see that a hands-only designed model can look this good; when treated right! - L.

Really excellent build. It just shows what a little tender loving care can do for a vintage model.
