Thanks Rowan and Mal!

I could say it was VERY difficult and painful to write an article so you would all complain me and say some nice words but... it was pretty easy in fact! In all, I spend just a few hours on it... the time for cement to dry! Then I "zipped" it and send it to the "Magician" et voilą!
My next project will be the build of two important planes of aviation history: the Heinkel He 178 and the Gloster Pionner. I will build them both strictly out of the box from the Condor and Special Hobby 1/48 kits.
I will then write a He 178 Vs Pionner building review and we will see wich one is the best!
My Bugatti 100P build could also be a good subject for an article, but this one will have to wait!

Thanks to all who took the time to read the "Russia's gull" article!

Hi Jean-Luc

I look forward to seeing the Pioneer - I reviewed it when it first appeared, but have never got round to building it. With my reputation... surprise, surprise!

All the best
