Chinook - Almost there ...

Not much left to do now, except a few more antennae, not included as kit parts. The building instructions suggest stretched spure, so that's what I tried.

I had never done it before, but have to say it's easier than I initially feared. For a short antenna (1 or 2 cm), this is really not big a deal. But for the longer one, I found it hard to stretch a part long enough with a consistent thickness.

As I soon discovered I was unable to produce anything good enough, I simply took some Evergreen styrene rod that I just happened to have lying around anyway.

Next step : to weather or not? These are very well maintained machines, so I don't want to overdo it.
