Working on installing the struts. Pics aren't the greatest but you get the idea.


I am still plugging away at the DVII and am also working on a pilot figure that will be standing next to the fuselage. Representing Lt. Jacobs will be this figure from Cockpit Wings, sculpted by my old friend Steve Warrilow. Still have to finish the face, buttons, cap and goggles along with a couple more finishing touches.
