Thanks for your interest guys.
Phillip, I'm going to pose it flying. Thanks for the tip on the weight though!
Dave, I loved this movie the first time I saw it. Such a cool concept.
Last night I got a lot done, I extended the horizontal stabilizers and widened the lower rear fuselage.
I also reinforced the horizontals so they won't droop later.
I also found parts to modernize the dash:
a setup to light the wings, dash and engine:
And I found something to use as a base:
Next up will be fitting out the rear gunners positions and building the light box to illuminate the dash.
Bodywork and paint on this are gonna be a bear!
Thanks for looking!
