Thanks guys.  

You better watch out, Pete, MFH just announced a 1/12 Eagle

The radiator is back in place.





The pipes along the top of the chassis got installed.



I painted the intake screens silver and got the suspension links on.




Also slowly getting the windshield fitted

Super awesome Paul. I sure remember these beasts from many years past!

A 1/12 Eagle? I have the 1/20 kit, and can only imagine the detail on one a little larger. At what the kits cost, I will stick with what I have!!

Yeah that's not too shabby at all. You set the bar too high too soon and you won't be able to duplicate that until you retire Paul.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. Denis, since I AM retired....where does that put the bar?....LOL

I got a bit more done on Wed nite and tonite.

Tires are done.


I custom mixed some Tamiya acrylic light blue and smoke to do the oil filter


I also custom mixed some acrylic for the orange stripe on the nose.   The decals just did not want to co-operate with me.   I don't know why the color in the pic is so red, but it looks good in person.


I very carefully used some Alene's craft glue to put the mirrors on the windshield.


Mock up on the chassis to see how it looks.


The beginning of the decals

Paul, this awesome build looks dangerously close to being finished. Must be time for it to stall.

Now I see the area you were talking about having trouble with the decals. I agree paint is the way to go there. Looks excellent buddy. Hope to see it in MOM next year.
