Follow Heinkel51's Skyraider build here.

Sorry about the delay but I've been away for a couple of days and missed the post requesting the thread.

Thanks Tim, as it was SHMBO insisted I regrout the ensuite so my weekend was a bit of a dud modelling wise. I'll promote this one to the top of the pile.

When I said the pile I did not mean the stalled pile . :oops:

In the spirit of trying to address some of all those outstanding builds in 2015. This one comes from the stalled pile.
The box top
Image
The sprues
Image
Image
Image
Image
Decals and canopy
Image
No shortage of ejection pin marks on this example, rockets filled with Tamiya white putty.
Image
Evergreen strip added to wheel wheels
Image
Simple cockpit and a typical Airfix pilot of the period – note he does not fit on the seat unless you sever his legs at the knees.
Image
Tail wheel and arrestor hook fitted and fuselage joined.
Image
Tailplane fitted and wings joined.
Image
Progress relative quick to date but expect to slow down as each undercarriage door will need to have ejector pin marks and small dimples in the surface dealt with.

It will look great when it's finished, Peter.
