Thanks, minitanker.  The finish photo is posted.

Thanks for your participation in the GB.  Your dioramas are always well done and lively to look at.  Lots of action going on.

Nice work, Steve.  A quick build and you still maintained your high level of quality.

Finish photo is posted.  Thanks for your participation in the GB.  It's been a pleasure seeing this come together with--well--jet speed.

Well worth the wait, mt!  Excellent diorama; lots of activity.

Is it finished?  If so, which photo for the completed photo would you prefer?

 

The fourth one if you please.

Check, I'm done with the buzz bomb. I'm glad I caught that little omssion before the end of the group build series.

Use whichever pic you want.

Thank you for hosting such a great series! Sorry I didn't finish the North Carolina but at least I completed something for that year.

Thanks Check. I'm sure it wasn't painted with a lot of care being it would only have one flight so I wasn't trying to be too careful. Tonight I sprayed the gloss for the decals and will spray a dull coat tomorrow. The cart on the other hand will be slightly beat up.

Great, Steve.  I hadn't realized these were painted with distinct upper- and lower-surface colors.

Nice choice, Steve; a little out of the usual! 

I can't quite see the scale, but I've posted it to the build roster.

Don't worry about the finish time.  If you get it done by the end of the year--fine.  But if you need time to "deck the halls" or go "a-wassailing," you can still post it whenever.

That's a good kit make sure you protect the little generator prop in the nose.

Don't worry, Steve.  Anything you start yet this year, you can go ahead and finish, even if it takes into next year.

Oh man! I thought for sure I built something for this GB Indifferent

I'd better fins something in the stash and knock it out before the end of the year. "Luckly"Confused we are furloughed between the 21st and 4th so I should get some bench time between my second job.

Thanks again for adding a great plane to the GB.

Great looking result, tj.  A very sleek looking Mustang.  The NMF is superb, and you got the anti-glare panel done up right!

Which photo do you like for the finish picture?

As always, thanks for being part of the GB.  It's always a pleasure to view your work.

I always start to worry at this point, that the NMF won't pull off with the tape.

That's a great looking natural appearing NMF, tj.  Nice work getting the shades to harmonize so well.
