Old school - so many rivets!

Will be finished in a US Coastguard scheme so lots of white and orange then :D
And nose weight...lots of that too.

Really looking forward to this GB and good luck with your own builds.

Cheers,

So this is going to be fun.

While the windows on this thing are fairly small (and so not much to see), the interior is completely empty. So I've added some strip to hold a floor and started on some very basic cockpit bulkheads..just plastic card and bits.

I'm easing myself into this before sanding all those rivets back :D

Definitely a rivet monster, Dermot! Good luck with the rescribing afterwards!

So a bit more done with this.

Rivets gone (mostly) and some panel lines rescribed instead.

And not that any of it will be seen, added a new floor and bulkheads in the cockpit and new floor and seats in the main fuselage.

Hopefully get the fuselage buttoned up this weekend.

So got the internals painted up.

The cockpit glued in along with a 20g fishing sinker.

And all buttoned up. A few spots need filler but overall, not a bad fit for a kit that's older than me. :D

Thanks for looking.
