Looking good so far. There was one of these buzzing around Canberra Airport the other day.

Progressed a little on this but no further pictures. Almost time to button up the fuselage.

Watching this one with interest. I have a Fred Harris resin 1/72 BBJ that I plan to build as a Wedgetail, have the cabinet space just need time and motivation! Oh, and decals...
I'm not older than dirt, but I do remember when it was new.

Its been in its box for some time without any attention Andrew. Looking at this thread I had forgotten how much work I had actually done on it.
