Hey Neo... don't get discouraged, dude!

This kind of stuff happens to the best people!!

Take a deep breath, think about how happy your GF will be, and chip away at it one item at a time. Eventually it will turn out just like code that won't compile - bit by bit the error messages go away, it runs, and eventually performs beautifully.

I have confidence in you; it will be OK.

Have a beer on a terasse in Montreal - that should improve your spirits, especially in this humid heat we're living these last few days.

Neo,

You can not see that you had a major mishap with the nose seeing this work that

you have done on it..

You have done a great job of making it look good again... I am sure once you have it all painted etc ...

It will be just AWESOME..

Keep up the good work. :worship:

You da man! Great recovery - I knew it would turn out OK. Your repair of the nose actually looks better than my original undamaged work on my 1:72 Canadian Forces Boeing 707. Glad to see it looks really nice now. Your GF will be happy with the result, and that's all that matters... right?

I'd hate to see a build where you had problems... :stooges:

I think if it were me, the model would have been 'flight tested' out a 10th storey window.

I like the end result. It looks very clean and well finished, especially knowing how many times you had to rework the paint and other areas. Hope your GF likes it!
