Well that's the wings and tail plane fitted - every time I put something else onto it it seems to grow exponentially !!!!!

Its just like he said in the film Jaws, after he had seen the shark for the first time -- "you need a bigger boat"
Mine is "I need a bigger workbench"

Should be out by now but still waiting for somebody to get ready - so bit more colour on the bottom of the plane. 
Talking to Haddock this morning he threatened me with WORSE than a Chinese Burn if I did a stone age battleship - so how about USS Fort Drum the American rock in the mouth of Manila Bay that they converted with concrete into a battleship - thinking about it I will still get worse than a Chinese Burn so will put that one on hold for a week or two - hohoho

At last the recycled Zulu soldiers have found the correct area to be in !!!!
They have also brought a friend, who is now in 3 sections and had big lumps cut out of arms and legs to help bending into the new correct position.

3 sections now fastened together -- from a running figure now he can be sat down, when a bit more is removed from his back end and the left arm bent in to operate the plane controls

Another poor Zulu soldier converted ( or as Zak would say mutilated ) -- both arms and his right leg changed so he can now stand on the wing and move the rock to control the planes direction. Next job to dress him in skins and fur.

Great work Msea,
This will be a great 'fun' attraction when complete.
