Thanks for the compliment. As evident, my skills aren't very refined but hopefully will improve with time. I coverd the plane with kitchen foil and tended every rivit and panel line individually. I know they aren't to scale but I just like the look. I'm currantly working on a VFS T-bolt---such a shame they sent it to market with the engine out of kilter, I tried, but failed to correct it. I think someone here did correct that engine debacle, would it be possable to find out how it was accomplished? Cheers Fred

Hi Fred. Paddy Barratt lined the engine up correctly on his VFS build. How he did it can be found in the build blog HERE Hope your planning on sharing some in progress photos of your VFS jug! Nige

I'm trying to get my skills and confidence up to tackle my VFS Jug as a major project in 2012, so I'm with Lampie here, lots of pics and notes please !! Cheers, D

Thanks VERY much for that link to Paddy's build, Nige. I will refer to that thread often. Too bad he wasn't able to work out the 'summary' for the fixes needed on that kit. I bought mine in a pair of both issues along with the Cammett AM. The one I'm working on now is going to be OOB for the most part, including most of the problems inherrent in the kit. Don't know why you all would want to see pic's of this mess but Ill try to get some together for ya. ( Hope it's easier, for me, to post photo's here than over on LSP). I may need some tudoring from time to time. BTW, is ther a post explaining the process of posting photo's? Something like 'An idiots guide to posting photo's' would be useful. When I dive into the next VFS kit I'd like to be able to attend to the corrections needed and open some of the pannels. Cheers Fred

Outstanding work. When I was at the PIMA Air Museum in Tucson, I met a Bolt pilot who was in New Guinea and he flew a plane called "Bonnie". He was with the 342 FS.

Kitchen foil? my first glance at your model I assumed you had mastered Alclad metal paint techniques how you had the patience and skill to use foil from the kitchen to replicate bare metal is absolutely awesome.Nice work...very nice
