It's hard to believe I started out with this:

I can't believe how well it went. Just one piece at a time and man is it strong! Very functional rigging. Now I only need to figure out how the wing tips rigging is attached, put on the pulleys along the top wing, rig the ailerons and other flying surfaces, etc......I guess there is more to do than I thought.

But man, it's coming along now! In the pictures, the guns and props are just on for show so they need to be fitted better but this thing looks really impressive. I can't wait to do the Roden Gotha and put these two together with my Bloody Paralizer!

Thanks for looking. Now back to some Airfix Revenge.
