I haven't managed to do much to it over the weekend, but I'll be back on the case later!

The story so far....

Of course, much of the model will need painting before assembly.

Noice. Red nosed camels always look better.

I tend to agree about red nosed Camels; they do have a good look about them :-D

Less festive than the reindeer version though. ;-)
Nice work so far.

The Camel has had a second lot of paint on, plus a few more bits assembled, so it is getting there!

Slowly but surely....

I'm anticipating getting the upper wings fitted on Monday, with any luck, and then the undercarriage after that. Decals should hopefully follow by the end of the week.

Upper wings now on - just waiting for them to cure in place before attaching the cabane struts.

Great stuff, Daz. Love that red nose. One last sprint and it'll be done.

The Camel is now up on her feet and the paint job is virtually finished....

It needs a bit of tidying up, but I want to get the majority of it done before I try that!

The white stripes on the fuselage are a little rough, but I'll do redo them later - I just wanted to get the damn thing off the desk!

Nice job Daren!

I know the feeling about wanting to be shot of a Camel......
