WIP: AMT/ERTL A-Wing Part 5

Not Abducted, Just Busy

It’s been a busy start to the New Year at work as I expected, and things have got a little busier this week with another project also for the end of January that I need to manage.  That’s pretty much wiped out my intended painting efforts for the next few weeks!
