I want to try out one, but Gerard is very hard to contact. Even one guy revived the t-33 thread asking for plans with no results. Tony.

Building that way Sergio you bypass the draftsman's blunderings
Bulkhead/former 4 (see photo) has a visibly smaller circumference than its section 3-4.
Again slipped through by correcting the drawing...So sorry.
This is one reason I once rejected an offer to sell my models.
A second reaon was the 10% ofthe selling price
Marketing...what's in a word ?

Hi Vinalssergio155 and Gerard
I am following your thread with great interest. I once started to build this kit scaled down to 1/250. It was never finished due to life's other priorities taking over. Maybe this thread will inspire me to search my garage for the surviving parts and finish the model.
I remember, most parts went together quite nicely. If memory serves me right I had however difficulties with the cockpit window and the extreme end of the tail. In both cases the development seemed to be faulty. However, since you show here a nice looking front window my problems might have been caused by the extreme miniaturization I tried to force on the kit.
Anyway, thank you Gerard for your generosity to give away free kits of such interesting airplanes.
Best,
Hornswoggler

Thank you very much to all for going through here. Do not worry Gerard for any error or defect, that makes the construction more interesting and tests our ability.
Hornswoggler, I also had the same inconveniences, the windows with a spare part of I do not know where to solve the problem,because there was a gap in the center. The end of the tail I need several adjustments until more or less managed to accommodate it, it is not perfect but I improve a lot.

Greetings. Despite the limited time available, I can finish one of the three engines. Several parts and formers, everything fits very well, without adjustments, you just have to be patient and not rush anything.
Gerard made a great design in these engines.
Air intake, antenna, exhaust pipes later we will add this. More skillful hands would achieve a better result, I am also more than satisfied and I had a lot of fun. Thank you.

Don boose,Garry,Abir Merlin,thank you very much!
Engines finished, still without the details. In the last two I made some small modifications and achieved better results. Although I do not get perfect and extremely clean joints the result leaves me more than satisfied. Continue to place some parts before positioning the wing, (which does not seem easy), because if I do not before then it would be complicated. Greetings and thanks.

First time looking in. Beautiful work. You can't tell, but I just gave you a standing ovation.
