almost 2.5 months left is plenty o time!

Interesting though with no windows on the nose. Will cut down on your interior work time for sure!

Chromed props as well. I'm gonna like this one.

The props look more bare metal to me, rather than chromed.

That's what I meant just couldnt think of the wording at the time. I don't think they were trying to "bling" it out.

:rofl:

The 'Meat' was probably still walking at the time!!!! Then again, if you're flying that high, it's cool anyway!

Idk reading some of those comments it sounds like the meat was already processed. And I don't think they flew on oxygen or anything so i doubt they were flying up where it was so high.

double blech.

La Paz is almost at 12,000 feet, so even at ground level, they were already pretty high, and the daily average temperature at La Paz is only between 5 and 8 centigrade, ie., fridge temperatures.

Very cool. Reminded me of the stories of how crews would use the temps at altitude to make icecream. A little more appetizing than the idea of meat, but none the less, very, very neat build!

I positively hated the way they designed the two small windows of the Nav's compartment with that rectangular piece on this kit. Aside from that this is a joy kit.

Looking good.
