Poor Rowan, I'm affraid that since stepping back from Aeroscale he quickly started getting old. He had build the model but completely forgot to paint it...
Darn it! I knew there was something I'd forgotten!
Actually, building it "raw" like this was quite frustrating, because I really wanted to do the model justice and finish it with a full paint job and markings. I started out thinking I might be able to glue it together temporarily, so that I could disassemble it and start again conventionally after the build-guide was published, but the weight of the major resin parts made that impracticable.
All the best
