    Very nice.
    Anybody going to try and build this with motorized prop's. Maybe try and radio control it. Just kidding, lovely model, needs a good display home which is dust free.
  2. Last little titbits
    I made the rope ladder like this;
    I cut out the rope ladder and left one side

  3. Then I glued the rope on the back and after that I cut of the last

    Hi Billy,

    Yes, you were definitely worth the 'Picture of the week' - your build thread is one of the most interesting recently. There are many ingenious solutions, which also greatly enhanced the look of your beautiful model.

    Your thread will be an inspiration and an assembly model for me - I have just scanned the whole Albatross model and begun cutting out the internal formers.

    All the best,
    Bengt :D

    Great job on this model, Billy!

    I really enjoyed this thread and model as it brought back a lot of great childhood memories for me.

    Great going Billy!

    Great tip on the rope ladder, by the way...very effective technique.
