The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

Nice work so far Glenn. Looks like the engine is on a jig. Is that part of the kit or something you have made?

Sorry about the dog mate, I know exactly how you feel. My two hounds have certainly filled/bridged the huge gap that losing my old boy caused.
My two even have their own Facebook page www.facebook.com/JangoandBoba I did it this way so that anyone viewing it wouldn't know who owned them or were they live (so please don't mention me or tag me etc).

Sorry to detract, great looking Spit mate, nice to see you working on something different :D
