 Caudron progressing.

 Added spatted undercarriage and tail skid.

 This makes it a C 450 . All thats needed now is a prop, the engine inlet to be done and make some decals.
 
 Decals are basically race number '1" with .

That is turning out to be a fantastic project. Each plane is a treasure in itself.

 Work has come to a temporary halt.

 With Caudron I'll have to wait till I get home next to make up some decals and spend some time with the rotary tool around the front.

  Cheers

  Gordon.

  Have been thumbing through my info on the DH Comet as Number 5

 I'm enjoying it so far.
 I'm planning to do the landing light and canopy in some recycled acrylic rod.
 
 Cheers

 Progress so far.
 
 Just pinned together.
 Still more work on fuselage required.

 Landing light has been "turned up"using a piece of Acrylic rod ( salvaged from a curtain system) in and electric drill.

  Cheers

Looking good Gordon, good idea for the light, it's amazing what you can use in building projects, I've just used some bits from a plastic biro to make a nose cone, but can't show you on here as its an egg plane. Regards Paul J.

Show us Paul. Could be useful to transfer to wooden models.
