Best WIP of the year

The best works-in-progress give you a detailed look at the process of building a model. It's like you're there, looking over a friend's shoulder as he works his magic. You ask questions. He answers. Maybe you give him a suggestion. Maybe there's an exchange of reference material.

This WIP of a Hobbycraft 1/32 Hawker Sea Fury on Large Scale Planes is on the best I've ever seen. Peter Castle shows you each and every step of the laborious process of building and detailing what is, out of the box, a very simple kit. His skills are epic. If you can't learn a thing or two from a read through this 49 page WIP, if you can't find at least five tips to take to your next model, well, you're hopeless.

Here are a few photos from Peter's build to whet your appetite.
