Hall's Bulldog Racer

OK this is another experiment for the Halls Bulldog 1/48 scale. I had a bunch of cedar planks, like you put in a closet. I glued the planks together. I plan to paint the black graphics and leave the red part natural wood. We will see how the planks look after carving.

Got most of the parts cut out for the Bulldog. The engine cowl looks like a rock right now, we will see how it comes out. The
 De Havilland is in the background. Had to fit the wing in an odd piece of bass wood I had left. I'll slice it to thickness on the bandsaw.

Just to prove I'm still modeling! Holidays and family stuff haven't had a lot of personal time. But...You need to make it ugly before you can make it a thing of art!

Finally got back to my work bench so I thought I would post my latest work. I was struggling with the shape of the wing, but I think I'm getting it right. Just needs some final sanding and it will be ready to glue in place. The landing gear started but it will be another challenge.
