Can't say enough about how happy I am. The client should be very pleased.

Dan....I was just going through some of the older posts.  Good call on using the SAC metal gear.  The kit gear would have sagged over time.  I built a 1/32 Hornet, for a former IP, back in 2011, and used the SAC gear.  It has held up all of these years.  I have two Academy kits at home, and I'll be using the SAC gear on them as well.

Nice work sir, come help me finish mine.

Sure. Send transportation cost, and I'll supply the beer and labour.

I didn't want to take a chance. Better safe than sorry!

This is good to know, not sure what my next project will be after my production line is completed.

 

Cheers

Got this one done! I have attached the canopy without glue for now, so that it won't get damaged in transit. Holds itself nicely. Here is a close-up of the cockpit, showing the avionics bay and canopy in place.

Shots of it done. Had to wait for it to stop raining here in the Great White North.
