Thanks Frank, Im not sure about kitting this as such, I will be taking a mould of the master im building now so as i can do one out of lighter fibreglass but after that im not sure. I may do the rest of the bits as One offs so to speak. Or I may go the whole hog and do the lot, lol.

Hi Phil

I know all about Chris pouring over your Sky 1 and I have seen the results, Very nice, but I prefer to have my bird with wings attatched in the mould. Just like your Original one, all the fibreglass strands mixed in slushed about making one Solid Continuous pull. Any other way and your asking for splits and chips.

I'm doing the wings as we speak/type, Watch for pics.

In primer and almost ready, Just a few little bits to tidy up, I decided not to scribe panel lines on this one as the original had them drawn on. Plan is to mould this and build the other bits around it.

OK.....I cheated, lol. I went with the tubes and filler route, took a lot less time than filing out those pesky tubes.

And theres the nose! Note both parts are a tad oversize to compensate for shrinkage out of the mould.
