 Caudron completed.
 
 You will note the absence of anything on the fin/rudder. My homemade decal and fine freehand painting skills are not up to it.

  On with the Comet.

Gordon:

Wonderful carving!! Great finish and a vibrant  colour  to peak a child's interest.

Just wondering what clear finish you applied. The smooth finish and high gloss certainly adds to the beauty of the model.

 Ken,

 Straight out of a can of Tamiya "French Blue". Several coats cut back between each.

 Watching the Spits with interest.

  Cheers

  A bit of progress. Wing fillets done. A bit of Brunswick Green applied . Landing light to be added.
  Nacelles need just a little more work. Mainly the inlet ports and adding an exhaust.

  Cheers

  New coat of primer.

  Bit of surgery will be required on the nose to fit the acrylic landing light.

  Shouldn't be long before its finished.

  Cheers

I just finished building a Commet in plastic and it doesn't look that good. You've definitely got the lines right.

 Landing light added.

 Off in search of some Tamiya Fine Primer.

 I've made a start on some decals. Just need to match the background colour.

 Cheers
