Very nice, Simon! I look forward to seeing it in the flesh on Saturday.

Did you get to the bottom of your earlier superglue / plastic / paint reaction woes?

this plane painted up fine. The Taube is still drying !  ... same order , same supplier. Just a radically different result

A good looking plane. I presume the model is quite light, easier to put on a stand.

Great looking plane, this was the one you used print on demand to supply.

Who did you go to in the end, and what scale to you ask the print to be made at?

yes - direct from Shapeways - 1/144

I'm middling about the results. This one is OK - the others less so
