Murph's Models - Saunders-Roe SR.45 Princess, 1/98, Beta Build

After many trials on assembly and re-scaling, I'm building Murph's Saunders-Roe
SR.45 Princess as designed. The fuselage, without the lower hull yet, measures
some 18-1/4" (46.2 cm) and the wing span is expected to be 27" with floats
retracted. So you guys who want it big will have it big. It's the hardest build
that I have come across so far. It's the nose section, ten parts each for the top
and mid bubbles. Man, it's killing me. A lot of paint job touching up is required
when the model is at its final stage of completion. BTW, a 3A battery is placed
there for size comparison.

Progress looks good. You're doing a great job on the multiple bubbles.

Nice job on the fuselage of this complexe bird .
The nose is incredible, very difficult to do
I like this aircraft, very weird but majestic.
Keep doing good work like that .
Regards,
Ronan

And it only took 3 redesigns to get it to this point.
