Right....

Back to the serious(ish) stuff, a small progress update.

The new water tank is just about complete, all the PSR is done apart from some scratches to buff out, I have added the water release doors, the Life raft chute, and the flare projectors. I also had to file a couple of depressions either side to give the wheels a bit more clearance

by Robomog, on Flickr

The rest of the construction should be pretty much Out of The Box but there could be a few further tweaks if they occur to me.

More as it happens....

Thanks for looking

Hi all

Another small update.

All the big bits are stuck together now and the smaller bits prepped. I have successfully produced and tested my own decals so should be able to complete the Gannet fairly soon real world permitting.

I've had to attach rather than embed  a progress picture because Flickr are 'updating' their website, hopefully they will have got their act together by the time I have finished this kit.
 
The Gannet is currently in the paint shop so the next post should be the finished article

Thanks for looking.........

That's coming along splendidly and the idea of a Gannet fire-bomber delights me to no end!

Thanks for a great update, Mog!
