I see this is the new Airfix moulding. I got the old moulding to practice rigging on and it's nowhere near as good as this, damn!!!!

Started this Revell 1/72 Stearman at Cass Hall on Sunday.
After filling the ejector marks.
I have just attached the top wing.

You're really getting into 'Golden Winged' aircraft. Moving on to the monoplanes, Wildcat, Dauntless?
