A quick update,
Been working on getting the fuselage and nose right and the wing slots which are going to be quite thin in 1/144. Also been working on the right profile of the horizontal stabilisers. All of which are in the post to Greg as I speak so Greg and myself can get some refined masters to work with and start the interior parts.

regards

Chris.

slowly getting there......

Just recieved the next stage of 'hollowed out resin masters' to work on from Greg and they look awesome. have attacked it already and with some spare time leading up to QMHE expo and wedding (missus can organise that stuff!). Even if theres a pre release prototype on the Ozmods stand i'd be happy!

pictures will follow later once i've done more with wings, intakes and other interior stuff

cheers

Chris.

Dude..it's nearly the end of June,thought you guys were planning on early 2013 release. Should we expect an early 2014 retail sales ballpark?

A lot of other work has gotten in the way, Asho. We're progressing (slowly), and it might be the end of this year or early 2014. Apologies for this.

No big stress mate,just for me with the delay other things come to the fore and I end up forgetting about things like this until they're sold out! Was hoping to get one before moving at the end of the year safely packed away ready for the new house and hobby room.

This pic was taken a few weeks back after working with the wing pivot point (nightmare :x ) as i was keen to see it all together even if it was with tape 8-) so wings hadn't been fully filled and sanded to suit to sweep mechanism yet.
Image

without the tape he is where some of the parts are at, the main gear well and compressor front are inside lower fuselage as you can see, they are separate. theres still plenty of room to add extra weight inside nose to get rid of those tail draggers.
Image

working on:
-cockpit,
-intake front cowling (as most would know about from if they've reworked an Arii or academy kit),
-exhaust cans
-undercarriage and wheels
