Roden Vickers Super VC10

For those of you who recognize this build from Facebook...... move along, nothing to see here.

My Roden Vickers VC-10 has entered what i call the "end game" which is the final integration of all the pain in the butt details like landing gear struts, blade antennae, pitot probes, and the like.

I've been doing an exhaustive narrative on the build over on Britmodeller, so rather than regurgitate all the photos i posted over there, i'd prefer just to post photos of relevant parts of the build cycle as questions come up, if that's okay with everybody.

Latest update from your buddies at Vickers-Armstrongs (Washington) Ltd.

My model building mojo took a serious hit after spending the month doing job interviews. Its coming back, but slowly.
I masked and painted the Dual-Loop ADF aerial on the upper fuselage. They actually sit slightly proud of the fuselage skin, and RODEN did include them, but they were inevitable casualties of the required filling and sanding evolution.

Here's an update on the underside. Still a few more things i wish to add.

So, that's the latest and greatest. As always, keep those letters and cards coming.
