Starting another project (still working on the Top Gun F-14, Hachette Spitfire and starting the Ford GT40)....This will be the tanker #59; 'Fire Eater', the second A-26C from the Spielberg movie Always. (#57 exploded with Richard Dreyfus onboard in the movie). Working on the Eduard PE for the cockpit pre painting,,,. :)

Continued the interior work on the fuselage - the actual tanker was modified to dual controls. I checked spares box and couldn't find enough to make a 2nd station, so I left it original. Still more to do....before closing up the fuselage halves..
