Thought i would post this little one for you all to comment on.....

Had a few more tricks when doing this one and I am really getting into it, just brush painting is getting a pain so I am going to give it a go with an airbrush next time.

All done straight out the box, only trouble was weighting the nose to stop her being a tail sitter, this was easily overcome as the jet pipe was one of the last things I put in, doing this allowed me to stuff more weight in the nose until I got it right.

Happy modelling.

Lovely build John, I've never built a Tunnan before but now I think I'll have to give it a go. :)
