Well, here I go- better late than never! Since I'm in a time bind, I can't guarantee that the girls show up on a regular basis- I'm busy buildin', man! ;)/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>

Happy to see another build Chuck, and this one for a good cause! Is the JU-388 on the back burner until you get this done?

Thanks, guys! I believe the deadline isn't until the end of January, so there will be a bit more time for the girls. As for the Ju388, I'll be finishing it up soon- there's just a scant handful of parts left to add. A shipment form Sprue Brothers is on the way with some nesting tubing from Albion Alloys- I'll make some antennae and a pitot tube. Props, nav lights and the final aerial is all that's needed.

Thanks again, fellers! I've been thinking a lot about the engine doors- and there's just no way they'd open or remove up to the very top of the fuselage- could one beam/stringer support all the werial stresses on the airframe? Some drawings show a door much like a Do335- I'll be going that route. It's a whiffer, yes- but like the Mythbusters, I'd at least like call this one

And my show will include girls, too!

Hey Chuck - as usual - fantastic work. I learn so many new things from your builds. And the cartoons make the learning fun! (ha - that was cheesy)

Thanks for sharing!

Mike

Oh yeah - was that a donated "chuck original" I saw in the raffle?

as always great work Chuk!

Im also diggin' the additional pin up with each post.

I still think you should market a decal set of "The Girls" in varying scales for nose art.

I like that idea. Could be a very creative group build idea!

Not sure what i'm more excited about, the chance to win a chuck original, or a new installment in this build! :woot.gif:

As always Chuck. Looking great. And that's for sharing your work and techniques
