Thank you gents for your appreciation - for riventing exercise it went quite ok. I did not play around with this much on other kits before, but with that kind of protuding "bolts" like on this kit I decided to go that way. Upper wing surface left - than I am ready for assembly.

It took quite a while, but the bird is ready for the paint shop now.

It's amazing to see a modeler building a wintage kit! Go Jürgen go!! I'm in.

Łukasz Gliński
That looks impressive after rescribing and re-riveting 👍
PS. Are you willing to get rid of the RCMP decals?

Juergen Klinglhuber
Your comments make me happy - thx Bernhard & Lukasz.
@Lukasz - I would be happy to send them to your attention and use, but unfortunattly the kit was second hand and opened already. Austrian markings were added (back in the days IPMS Austria did some up-dates on existing kits - they organized a print of decals for a limited number of kits) but no Canadian markings. Sorry.

No problem, just keep up that grand detailing work on this lovely plane.

Great looking interior, Juergen. This is a kit that needs to be re-released by Airfix.

Exactely one year after starting this built I can call it "DONE".
Being the one and only in this groupbuild relased a lot of pressure with respect of timing 😉
Nevertheless this little bird had given me quite some challenges. So the topcoat was done twice. The old decals showed cracks and the wheels broke loose 3 times - the last time this moring, when I was going to take the pictures. I dropped the transport box and it went down half of my stairway. I lost both of the tires, both of the elevators and the antennas. The rest was still ok, so lets call this a lucky mishap. And...I can report: literally this bird did its maiden flight one year after starting construction. 😉
I hope you enjoy the pictures. cheers

It would have been a real shame if it had been destroyed on the first flight! Nicely done 👍

Nice little Austrian Beaver👍. Never thought this is the old Airfix kit when seeing the finished model.

Juergen Klinglhuber
Danke Neuling & Daniel. I was quite desperate sometimes during the build with all the un-planned hick-ups, but for sure it paid off to go the extra mile with the remove of the protrudeing rivets and resrcibbing them. Thx for your endorsemnet and recognition.
