I am sure it will finish up great Dennis. Apart from their use as templates as mentioned above, I have never been a fan of paper models, but do appreciate the finished models given their intrinsic peculiarities.

I have a Graupner GR65 that I have now managed to sort out the rigging with members help (see earlier posts).
Now that I have her sailing I've found droplets of water appearing around the seal (or lack of it!) for the keel box where the box is attached to the hull. It's definitely coming in there as I've held the hull in the bath and watched the droplets appear.
The area is very difficult to reach and the front of it is impossible to reach. I'm assuming that some sort of resin that can be poured in to the hull is the way to go.
Any suggestions on what is the best solution for this?

Good oh! Yes, detail just seems endless until it just seems done and then you think, where did all that work and time go to get here!

Good luck with the wings.

Hi , the frame is mostly bits of an electric wheelchair, along with other bits of tubing and a custom headstock my engineer friend kindly made for me. It is a bit fast for its size/ lack of suspension. I have had it at 45 odd on forest tracks but theres more to go if you are brave. It used quad wheels and hubs with cable operated drum brakes which are adequate.

Thank you for that inspiration Geoff,  I'm not going to give up. We will see what the end looks like.  I have done alot of modeling over the years and I have to say, this has been the most challenging and its only paper  %% .  Dennis
