As has become customary of late, I abandoned my workshop over most of the winter, having ended 2018 on a new and especially morale-sapping low: Having spent more than two weeks during November painstakingly fabric covering and rib stringing the model’s rudder and elevators, it took just twenty minutes to strip the whole lot off! Once again I had wrecked a beautiful job at the painting stage! I do not propose to go into the detail, which still chafes at a raw nerve. The pictures say all that is necessary!
