    John,

    Did you notice that I changed the cowling just a bit? I narrowed the opening a bit and tried to make the radius of the speed ring a bit bigger ie less sharp. Do you think it looks better or can you even tell?

    Looks great BTW

    Will,

    I did notice that it when together a bit easier............. I just thought I was learning better:oops:

    Also noticed that you split one of the top parts on the nacelle too.

    I pulled out my "Marine Mitchells" book and you should see the radar nose they put on this bird. I'll scan you a picture this evening.

    I still have the other engine, top turrent, and back "glass" to build. Next time I'll take time a edge color the parts, but I wanted to build a color version as fast as I could so I could............well............ you know........... make airplane engine noises and fly around the room. Err..... only when I'm alone:grin:

    john

    OK............ like you AFV guys don't roll your tanks around and go "BOOM"..........yeah right!:grin:

    Ain't it fun to act like a kid again when nobody can hold it against you!
