I am so sorry that I have to drop off the campaign. I wanted to build PZL-23 Karas in Romanian services, but due to completely not having time for modeling I will not be able to finish it. I am about 50% done, but I do not thing that I can do the rest of it in next week. Sorry guys.
Few words about the kit. It is very nicely molded kit with many fine details. Especially cabin is very nicely done. But it is a complicated kit. It does require a lot of time. Also, something which I do not understand, there is no locating pins on the model, so it feel like a short run model. But other than that missing those pins, which make our lives a little bit harder it is a very nice kit of rather unusual aircraft used for more than half WWII in the first line of duty for few countries. And it is so different looking aircraft (some people refer it as ugly instead of different  ) so it will look great and odd finished in the collection.
And some of the pics of where I will leave it for a another round of Hangar Queen:

Tom, You have a lot of nice work done on that model. It is a big project and deserves the time. I hope we can see more. Maybe, you can start a build thread about it, or bring it Hanger Queen 6.


I finished these Caribou today, with a day to spare.





One or two other models were well along, any other last minute finishers?
