A few decals and some of the control surfaces, off to the DRC for 2 weeks, then I will complete the build.
5 additional images. Click to enlarge.

Can’t the Congolians do without you for a little longer? And why is your beautiful aircraft resting on a block of cheese?
Marc Barris said on September 24, 2018
🤣 cheese……. no, just a little support for now. I am a little shy on the nose weight. I will add some lead a little later.

I’m in awe of your talent(s), sir…jaw-dropping work for sure!
Thanks for the kind comment Craig.

Thanks a mil for you comment George

Great build, realizing it was born from sheets of styrene…
Indeed Michel, On all the material needed to build this aircraft so far it has cos me about $20, I would love to know how much a kit like this would cost if I had to buy one. Thanks for the comment.

It’s a lesson to all of us lesser plastic bashers. Looking forward to seeing the canopy and other clear bits in place.
I will get started with the final bits when I get home, thanks for the comment.

Marc, to paraphrase Mr. Cleaver … I’m not worthy!
Block of cheese indeed! Hilarious, David!
Paul Nash speaks for ALL of us. I look forward to the completion.
I see we are stuck on the cheese, I think I will fill the nose with crackers to get the front wheel down…….. Thanks for the comment Jeff.
Hilarious! Great idea, Marc.
Cheese or crackers – no matter … your Pilatus is a work worthy of a museum, Marc. (As is EVERYTHING I’ve seen of yours.) I’m totally serious and mean this with all my cheese-loving heart. 😉
Tom Bebout said on September 25, 2018
That’s really looking nice, even sitting on a block of cheese.
I think I should make a diorama, with the cheese, I’ll just add a glass of wine, that should complete the picture…………
Thanks Tom, please let me know if you need some cheese to support the tails of any aircraft you might have that are tail heavy….
Make sure it’s cheddar. It’s a wee bit heavier than most other cheeses. You can use it to weigh down the front. Probably easier to find than lead. And taster! Besides – I didn’t actually bring it up in the first place. Paul did and he’s a lot closer to the town of Cheddar, England than I am here in Indy or you are in Seattle!
I almost forgot to ask: Pilatus is a Swiss company, right? They make some fine cheese there, too. But with all those holes, it’s lighter than most other frommage’.
OK – I’ll not mention cheese again, I promise, Marc.
You slay me Jeff…….
Greg Kittinger said on September 25, 2018
Man – tease us with a couple of posts, and then head back out on the road! What a heartbreaker!! Travel safe and come back to finish it, so I can stop drooling!
Its probably the cheese that’s making you drool Greg, thanks as always for the comments.
Tom Cleaver said on September 25, 2018
I’m always in awe of you guys who can create models like this at that quality level. Really superb. And yes, “I’m not worthy!” 🙂
Thanks as always for the kind comments Tom.
Tony Prince said on September 28, 2018
Stunning work Marc. Can’t help being intrigued by the cheese & biscuit comments & it makes me wonder what you will be putting in the fuel tanks; perhaps a good red wine? Seriously, I am looking forward to the final installments. Master class I think!
Marc Barris said on September 28, 2018
Thanks for your kind comment, yes indeed, a good wine in the fuel tanks sounds like a great idea.
