Yup, another basket-case MPM kit. These guys have to step into the modern era with manufacturing processes!  If it wasnít a project for a friend, it would have been in the can!

The forward fuselage halves had to be cut off, and clear vac-form replacements are then installed.  Sound like fun?  The reward for my efforts showed in the final product, and the look on my friendís face when I delivered it.  It has generated some buzz among several people in the local club, some of whom tried the kit.

Hope you like it.  The pic is of the aircraft near Pictou, Nova Scotia during its time in service.
