Looking good Glenn :)

How are you planning to deal to the seam left by attaching the lower and upper hull pieces?

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

I've got a couple of DML 251s in the stash, and I sometimes scratch my head as how best to paint them :lol:

I have put afew together and have come out pretty good,really need to complete the inside paint and all the join the top to the hull,complete out side construction then mask off inside and paint.
The DML 251 kits go together pretty good,well better than the old 250 kits,wish DML would do an up date on this kit.
