I think the windscreen mesh is still not fine enough. It should be almost like nylon hose.

Add me to the list of Blower Bentley fans.

Looking forward to seeing this unfold!

Remember, John, only 5 months 'til Desert Scale Classic! So, you have plenty of time to finish this one and four or five more killer builds!!! LOL.

Good Lord. This could end up being the best build ever of this kit. Question - where did the pin marks on the seat backs come from? My kit didn't have them.
