After knocking off the KC-130J it was time to get back onto this build.

I have now finished adding antennas as well as a pilots boarding ladder and rear fuselage strakes

My stalled Sydney Seaplanes Beaver which I have decided to get finished.

I forgot there were masks in the decals set for the clear parts and was being put off by the masking, Update coming for that build coming shortly as well.

Hi Ray.
Nice to see this little bird coming along.
Knowing how the building process was, that fuselage is gorgeous.
That makes me think to my stalled Twin Otter (Stalled? Oh no, a Twin Otter never stalls :lol: )

I am calling this done, added the final decals and antennas. Still have to touch up around the upper anticol beacon do fill one window with Klear.

I was a bit annoyed as when I was gloss coating some rubbish in the airbrush spattered out, I suppose it will blend in with all the overspray spatter on the build
