It makes sense.......be a while yet as I work my way back through the CL-44 then Britannia's

The Britannia 100 will be the last of the set

The Britannia 100 model has been created but lacks detail and finishing in certain areas.

Thw Britannia 300 has not yet been made but it's largely the calling in of certain parts used in the other models

Only a BKS test paint has been created

Thnaks Joe

The gear is the same on the CL-44 but the Britannia does not yet have the tilting bogey.

The CL-44 D4 has advanced further since the limited release and while the final version of that particular model chugs through the test area the next has been brought up to that standard.

A couple of small bugs to sort out, but after spending the last few days rebuilding I've been up and about actually flying.

The next in the series is the CL-44-6 or as was in service the CC-106 Yukon
