Now some filling and sanding, to make the rough edges disappear:

Great progress Crash, certainly looks like a Scooter.

Hope you have plenty of filler. :lol:

On a super zoom pic, the gaps look like Grand Canyons, but, in fact, they´re not so bad looking
This is the 3rd kit from the 1950ies I´m building, first came Airfix´ Gladiator, then Frog´s Spit Mk I, and of these 3,
this seems to be the most convincing looking kit, IMHO.
Working on oldtimer kits made me "battle hardened".... :roll:

Your Scooter is coming along wonderfully, Crash!

I think this one may turn out to be a real head-turner!

That’s coming along nice.

You need to build their new version just to see how kits have come on in the last forty plus years.

I don´t plan to make it a head-turner :) . Progress has slowed down, but scratched elevators should be ready for glueing-on by tomorrow ;-)

Thanks! That would make modelling some more easy for me, but right now, I´m not so into modern kits.
Once this one´s done, I´ll return to my s.o.d.-kits, of which some are rather easy-going to build, though.
(and some of them even had their origins in this century (doh!))

at least horizontal stabs are ready now, but the elevators come first, before I glue them on the fuselage:

Except for that antenna behind the canopy, I won´t add any more.
Now preparing for priming

Now, before I comment on all the other builds in this GB, I better go on with my Scooter!
I want to prime her tomorrow.
