Haha Hey I'm taking my sweet time! Actually, I'm just starting from the bottom up instead of top down like you. heheh.
Well come on then let's see the colour!!!
Sure. Hinges would be no sweat. I just think it'd be a waste to hide this mill in a full bay. I don't display them with the hoods up anyway. I've already got a Model A project that'll be able to show it off proper.
I love the nose down attitude, with the wheels...Perfect!!
And why not use the 303 ? I'm sure you can make the hood hinges scale......
