Thanks, BK and 'goose- and sorry for the late reply. Embarrassed

There's a bit of a curse in having lots and lots of reference on a build. I keep finding new things about the Mohawk, and have been figuring out some of the more shadowy ends as well. In spite of my soon-to-be corrected cataracts and relapsing vision problems I've actually gotten some stuff done!  Come along and see just what, won't you?

That canopy detailing is stunning. Your model, Ms. Dee Staples, is JEALOUS!

Thanks, guys!  I've decided to slip this little kit into the mix, so here's a review. Namdroid, BYW, is a character from my good friend Andrew Neal's Meeting Comics, a really fun and funny mature comic strip. Enjoy!

Great to see you back! Beautiful work as usual. Thanks for sharing your weathering oil mx recipe. I just picked up some of that drying medium myself. Going to give it a try on my current build.

Thanks, Jeaton and the Mongoose!  If anyone still remembers, I'm back with this eternal build. Just had a great visit with my Optho and the old peepers are in pretty good shape. I've done this up special- for you!

Quit tryin to fool everyone into thinking this is a scale model... we all know this is a fullsize rebuild you have going on in some hanger probably in the southwest somewhere like Arizona or Nevada...
