  2. So it has to sit for a couple of weeks before the clear to gas off. I couldn't help but bolt it back together to see it as a whole.

    While it looks better to me put together than it does apart, it is still in definite need of all them darn stars!! I started cutting out a week or so ago, and it looks like I need to sit down and get them finished.... All 180 of them lol

    The stars that are on the wing in the pictures are just paper tests. And the 47 templates are actually grampa's templates which I'll use to make mine.

    Well the pin strips look good and the the colour scheme looks good too that Is one stubby plane. Never seen it before it is one of a kind.

  6. It is a stubby son of a gun!! Maybe I'll nickname it Stubbs :D

    Anyway, after a couple of hours cutting this afternoon I had all of the white stars. I then set about sticking them on....

    So now it has Stars, starz and more starz!! And I'm not done yet!! I still have to put them on the bottom of the top wing, and when I get some blue vinyl, I still have to get them on the bottom wing.

    The ones on the wheel pants and cowl in the pics are just the backing paper taped on for the effect.

    Interesting to see a biplane without wing struts, it makes them look different. It really sets this plane apart from the rest.

    Looking great there bud. While the stars look great on it and o do consider myself a very patient person I don’t think I would have been able to do them all without driving myself mad. I know how much work is involved in hand cutting a bunch of checkers so I can only imagine with those.
