Jeff,Boots, Paul, cheers guys!!!!!!! she is a whinger this one, wanting to be built while I'm trying to finish the crane. never mind i'm keeping her happy and paying her some attention!!! the tail components are terrible so I made those with brass rod and soldered them, added the gun mount and the cockpit surround. Carved the prop and that's me done for the day, thank goodness I don't have to go to work any more, couldn't stand the pace!!!
thanks for looking in

Well!!!!! thanks you lot! most gratefully received positives
Jeff, the prop comes as 12 lasercut flat pieces. these are then placed on a round dowel through the centre and laminated.......supposedly!!!! then filed/sanded to shape. A friend asked if he could do that part and he made a pigs ear to say the least!!!!!!!! I managed to delaminate about 1/3 of the said pigs lug and added strip until I had the correct thickness. I had to carve those parts to match the profile and then sand it smooth. there are two divots just left of the centre which will need filling.
