Another project I'm working on (as well as the DH Dragon), the reverse engineering of Dora Wings 1/72 Percival Vega Gull into the Gull 6 of Jean Batten's fame. Really just needs 2mm removed (as wedge ) from centre section of the fuselage and also shortening of the wing centre section and tail plane (drawings come in handy). The cockpit also needs changing as the Gull 6 had staggered 3 seats where as the Vega Gull was 4 seats, 2 abreast. A couple of pics show progress
The added width in the Vega fuselage (the kit) is just the added pane of perspex in the windscreen. The Gull 6 requires reduction of width by a scale 6" (2mm) in the cabin area and tapering tail section and nose section to match. Shortening the wing center section is easy, it just requires severing the upper half of the outer wing and shortening and mounting to the intact lower half (to maintain dihedral). Once this is done you then shorten the inner bottom half of the wing.
