Building again.. well kind of!

I know its been a long time since I posted a build update and that’s because it has been a long time since I sat at my bench to work on a build. Hopefully though you have enjoyed my recent book reviews, there will be a couple more reviews of other books coming soon too.

Good news is I have dug the SR-71 out of hiding and started to work on it again so we should see something on that fairly soon.

I hit an issue almost straight away when I noticed the raised detail around the cockpit had being removed during some previous sanding from the last time I worked on her so I was having to reinstate that with a scribe.

Unfortunately I slipped with the scribe due to the curve on fuselage at the front so I have a lovely squint line across it at the moment, no drama I thought, just fill sand and do that area again, only to find out my filler has cured in its tube, obviously the cap wasn’t done up tight enough.

So I am just waiting for fresh filler to be delivered then I will continue where I left off and we can get some pictures up soon. I have also invested in some Dymo tape to use as a guide when I need to scribe panel lines etc in future too!
