Hiya Captain:

It just looks better and better every time I see it. And it is amazing watching the change as you put on the diffrent layers of color to arrive at the finish. This one is going to be a real nice one when you are finished with it.

Nice, Jack! One question--do you twist the tow cables yourself, or do you just strip the appropriate gauge copper wire? If the latter, could you tell us what gauge? Thanks!

I have painted the tow cable and applied the decals. Everything is seal and ready to add some weathering. I hesitate to bang up this model too much, I plan to add some dirt.
