Hi Joel , very sorry for the late reply back . But I haven't been in front of the bench now for two weeks . Been out there riding a Cannondale now that we are having wonderful weather !
Won't be having to many more up-dates for a while or until there is a rainy day . So this will be my last one for now ...
I have finished masking the front canopy section section and it's glued in place and masking of the rear section is under way then it's off to the paint shop . The engine cowls didn't fit very well needing some sanding to get to fit . I was going to leave them off , even though the engine itself is nicely detailed it was just to bare inside the engine bay and I didn't want to spend the time adding detail .
Looking good so far. When you get to the bench, you'll get more done.
Like you, with the nicer weather, and being retired, I'm finding myself spending more time outdoors then in quite a number of years since I'm not beat into the ground trying to recover from another work week. I'm even cleaning up my fishing gear I haven't used in several years. Modeling while not being put on the back burner, will just be getting less time till the damp, cold, dreary days are once again back.
