Looking good Bro. Is the woodwork all pre cut now, years ago the one that I built had really rough wood in the kit.
Do you Remember this one ? She had 2 Robbe kort and props.

How did you get on with the bridge details?
There have been several recent Darby builds on rcgroups.com, I'm sure someone there will have some good reference.
