Break it down and build it up

Well, it's amazing what 15 minutes and a jar of paint stripper will do. Russell was pretty soon down to its component parts. I found it quite intriguing watching all the previous liveries come through as each layer was stripped back.

But that was the easy bit! But it's not a complex kit so, after about an hour with a soldering iron, most of the kit was back together again. Even better it was back together in much better condition than when I first built it over 10 years ago. I think I must have chucked it together with superglue in about 5 minutes flat. This time it's all square, well held together, and without all the odd little gaps that were in it before.
