I echo Peter's comment, well done Gordon. The chosen colours are bright and attractive. Will you adopt me as a grandson?

Gordon - I'd like to add my note of admiration as well. It's great to see creativity and imagination in this day of electronic everything for children. I'm sure you've created a family heirloom that will be passed on to the next generation.

A bit off the pace with your single engine birds would be a DH88 Comet. I love your progress to date.

  Lou,
 I have pondered the Comet . It would have to green therefore it would have to be G-ACSR.
 I'll make a decision shortly. Might be the Comet and a Laird Supersolution.
 
 I shall see what happens.
 Cheers
 Gordon

  The GBZ is now finished.

  Wire bracing from cotton thread stretched with a weight on one end and with a coat of silver then allowed to dry.
  Not much fuzz as a result.
  Home made decals.
  Rattle can cadmium yellow with touch up using Humbrol "insignia yellow" overall coat of semi gloss clear.

  Cheers

  Gordon
