    Before you go too far the underside "scoops" open to the rear: https://ca.images.search.yahoo.com/search/images;_ylt=Awr9J.2IrwxceRIAPWnrFAx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByNWU4cGh1BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=canadair+northstar+engine&fr=mcafee#id=13&iurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vintagewings.ca%2FPortals%2F0%2FVintage_Stories%2FArchivedStories%2FNorthstar30.jpg&action=click Just so you know........

    GEMINI 9A - 1/24

    Maybe put some mold release on the astronaut's face before filling and sanding milliput and then pop it out and plunge mold clear vacuform material to trim a clear face shield? That shot to the eye puts you off everything for the rest of the day, eh? My problem has reduced enough that my guy put me on eyedrops instead for a while but was getting the needle every 4 weeks for a while there. Good luck with everything....

    MIA, the Original AH-1G Cobra!!

    There are very good kits in 1/72 from Special Hobby and there was talk they would scale them up to 1/48 like they do with some of their stuff. You should talk to them and push them on......

    Larry Millberry's Northstar book is a good reference if you can get access to one.........You caught the window on the port rear that needs to be filled and believe there is a small one on the starboard behind the cockpit that should be filled too. There is a picture in the book that shows this. It is however a small window. Looking good so far....Dry fitting of the resin engines in my kit show a pretty good fit so build away
  9. I'm now thinking that certain workers in Western Canada (Vancouver) are more efficient than certain workers in Eastern Canada but that certainly couldn't be the case eh
  10. Looks just wonderful so far Chuck. Curious as to where your number stencils are coming from as I don't believe there is really much of a backlog when something came for me today that left Hong Kong on November 30th. I think it is more of a factor of where stuff is coming from. Stuff from Eastern Europe like Poland and Ukraine seem to take forever (over 6 weeks) but other things get here just fine.Hope you don't have to wait much longer... Cheers Bruce

    Biplanes and/or the Great Air War build

    Would a Canadian Burgess-Dunne kit count since it got to England but never actually flew? (You may need to google it)
