Thanks Lou.I got that site from your link to the Laurent Chassard Harvard II. There are some great images on there. I will most likely build the undercarriage. Regards Paul. PS. with a bit of tweaking some of the profiles here could be useful!!!. http://skytoons.co.uk/?page_id=330

A bit of progress with component manufacture. I had to make the exhaust nozzles from square as I don't have any dowel. Wheels will be from the spares box. Regards Paul J.

When dowels are not available in the right size I quite often do the same for nacelles and exhaust. I must say it is looking great.  I look forward to the assembled model.

Just a quick update to show progress so far. All main parts except burners glued on filled and sanded ready for first coat of primer. I could only find oil based grey primer, no waterbased available so I will have to mix some up. Undercarriage assembly also in hand, fuel tanks and pylons still to make. Regards Paul J.
