Calling this Jake done, this puppy was a great build with Mike west updates such as the cockpit, cowling and windshield. The canopy lifted during these shots but now is fixed. I hope you like it.

Thanks B, I will try. had a bad accident yesterday. I had my flip-flops on and my daughter and I were taking a kitchen table down the front stairs and I missed the last Two stairs and fell backwards on to the sidewalk, twisted the crap out of my ankle , smashed my butt and right shoulder off the ground and still had to go to work all busted up. Thank you for the compliment. I will re start the Grace soon as I heal a little more. Rob

Rob and -Neu-,

I had not made time to check out the completed build thread until today. Great work on your builds! They look sharp. Very sharp. -Neu-, I'm looking forward to seeing your other two builds too. Keep up the good work!

Cheers,

You got my respect, man. No way my eyes could do a 72nd project that would turn out that nice!

Wow, thank you! I only build in 72, so I guess after alot of trial and error I've done something right.

Sweet!

May I ask what color you used for the upper side blue? I used MM Sea Blue on mine, but it looks too dark.

Thanks, and kudos on a job well done!

OK everyone, this one's done. Well, the airframe's done. I had a minor setback with the pilot. That aside, here are some pix of the finished build. Enjoy!

This was a challenge to build, but I had fun nonetheless. It provided me with some good practice. Hopefully some of the experience I gained through this build will serve me on future projects. Thanks for following along! I hope it was worth your time.

Cheers,

Thanks for the comments on the Rufe guys.

Ax, I love that paint job, very fine surface, it looks highly polished. A Corsair with the flaps down looks so cool
