As I lost interest in building models of late, Have started building a plane which gave me a bit of interest, So now I am looking at this one been clean up the chassis, Its going to be a long slow build.

clea that's a cool old B61, That's why I not in a hurry to build it as I don't want to bugger it up, this one will be a curbside and not going to open doors or bonnet, I buggered a old jaymar one rushing it.

The one you're looking at was the first one jaymar did (according to Col)..wafer thin, or thick....no in between and (no offence) absolute crap.
It ended up 95% body filler

Geez Allan, there's nothing wrong with having 40 builds going at once.....is there?
Pulled one of the cruiseliners out for you, was just checking make sure it's all there, then i'll send pm with photo, no decals (there all in zip bags in melb...she won't let me near the place)....Last one pulled $110 on ebay, SNIB...I'll let you put a start price on what you'll get.
