Hi All,

Decided to start my first build topic on Aeroscale after Steve inspired me with his Starfighter - best ever build.
This is the first kit since my last 2011 Sea Fury project (32 scale by Paul Fisher). I decided to:

1. make an inflight dual Zipper;
2. of the Dutch Masters OCU squadron - operational between 1963 - 1968;
3. keep After Market use to a minimum (save for seats, and some Eduard external help);
4. rescribe panels where appropriate;
5. design a magnet display system for easy transport.
6. use pilots of Master and convert where necessary to make them 60-ies like.
7. try masking techniques for certain decals.

Letís get started!

Hey Tim,

What a great project. I hope its a lot of fun, and I'm pleased and flattered to have inspired you a little. I'm in a sanding, sanding, sanding stage, so not much to show right now, but you know what? Just seeing your two seater taped up has got me excited to finish.

I'm following along.

Happy modelling,

Steve.
