Great to see you making a start on this impressive kit Phil. I will definitely be following and commenting throughout the build!

A nice steady start and boy do you have a long way to go 'til the finish, but I've no doubt that the end result will be worth all of that considerable effort over the next few months! Drool ThumpUp
