There were plenty of things I could of done, but was not wanting to open up a can of worms and get sidetracked
Maybe in twenty years time when I paint it again I'll do the lower front nose as well

Up until a few days ago I thought there was only 2 suppliers of safari Windows
Well it seems there is a Chinese repro set out there
Bought these via FB thro Kvolks and at $800 odd dollars delivered I thought they were worth a chance, and that's $1000 cheaper than a set from another oz supplier
Apart from that no other supplier had stock it seems there is a brand new set been made by another supplier that promises to be better than creative and Wolfgang. I guess time will tell

Ok time for a update
After having finger tips perfect for a bank robbery and Daniel son sore shoulders from karate kid we can see light at the end of the tunnel
Now if I'm completely honest I did nearly lose my George Michael..............faith in what I was doing was going look any good
Now I know some might disagree with me but I'm happy with how it coming together now
There's a few things I would do differently if I was to do it again
Anyway a bit more to cut & polish and we can start bolting things back on
